The Nevada women's basketball team had an unexpected guest during today's shootaround at Cal Poly, when former Nevada Track/Field All-American Jenni Ashcroft stopped by to greet the team. Ashcroft was a three-time conference champion in the pole vault for the Wolf Pack, winning the Big West championship in 2000 and WAC titles in 2001 and 2002. Ashcroft helped Nevada claim a Big West outdoor track championship in 2000 and second-place finishes at the WAC championships in 2001 and 2002.
The former Nevada great is in her first season at Cal Poly as an assistant coach for the Mustangs track and field program. Ashcroft spent the last six years coaching at Oregon.
The Wolf Pack women's basketball team will face Cal Poly tonight at 7 p.m. Follow Don Marchand with the live call on ESPN Radio 1450 AM or through a free Stretch Internet audio stream here.
