STANFORD, Calif. -- Stanford sophomore Kristyn Williams ran the fastest collegiate 400-meter time in the country this year and teammate Brianna Bain had the No. 2 javelin throw, at the Stanford Invitational on Friday at Cobb Track and Angell Field.

Tyler Stutzman also produced a victory in the invitational 1,500 to highlight performances from the Stanford men. Stutzman ran 3:42.45 to power to victory.

Williams broke into the lead and fought off fatigue to hold off two other runners to earn the victory in 52.70, the No. 3 time in school history. The time was a collegiate best for Williams in her season outdoor debut.

Bain opened her season by winning the invitational javelin with a throw of 180-5, to win by nearly 19 feet. The throw was the second-longest ever for the two-time defending Pac-12 champion and two-time first-team All-America. Only her school record 183-10 from last year's Big Meet is longer in Stanford annals.

Another highlight was Lucas Rowley's mammoth personal best to win the collegiate section of the men's discus. Rowley threw 174-9, an improvement of 13 feet from his previous record.

The 39th Stanford Invitational is the first meet of the season for the full Cardinal squad.
