SEATTLE – The first of three straight days of track in the Dempsey is at an end, with some impressive performances setting the stage for the main event on Saturday. The track events started with the 200-meter dashes, and the Huskies put three men and two women in the top-10 in each, led by a runner-up finish from sophomore Quadelle Satterwhite. Late in the night, UW got some big tosses in the weight throw to close things out.
Satterwhite, an All-America honorable mention on the Husky 4x100m relay last year, ran an indoor PR of 21.64 seconds to come up less than a tenth shy of the Husky top-10 list. Freshman Andrew Brown also impressed, winning his heat and taking fifth overall in 22.00 seconds. Sophomore Travis Marshall also ran a PR of 22.43 to finish 10th.
In the women’s 200m, Haley Jacobson was sixth overall in 25.28, just off a personal-best, and sophomore Krista Armstead was 10th in 25.62.
After most spectators had headed home, the weight throw was still wrapping up. On the women’s side, sophomore Bev Coleman had a best of an even 53-feet on her third attempt, which vaults her all the way to No. 3 on the Husky top-10 list. Sophomore Carolyn Gravelle also had a new best of 49-9 which pushes her to tenth. For the men, sophomore Jack Scheideman had a two-foot PR of 57-3 ¾, just a few inches out of the top-10 list.
The women’s pentathlon packed all five events into the day. Senior Shelby Williams finished fifth with 3,514 points, just forty points off her career-best. She was third in the shot put with a toss of 40-7 ¾ and fourth in the 800m in 2:27.48. Sophomore Ciana Baron also had a big PR, scoring 2,986 points.
The men’s heptathlon completed four of seven events. Freshman Cole Jensen, competing unattached, sits fourth with 2,845 points, helped by a big high jump win at 6-8 ¾. Sophomore Nick Pfeiffer is also sixth with 2,773 points and freshman Carson Murray is ninth with 2,651.
The distance medley relays took center stage late in the evening. The Husky men ran Izaic Yorks on the 1,200-meter leg, Andrew Prentice at 400-meters, then Meron Simon at 800-meters and James Cameron over the last 1,600-meters. A strong first leg from Yorks had the Huskies just a couple meters behind two separate Oregon squads, but the Ducks pulled away for the win in 9:28.91, one of the fastest times in the NCAA thus far, and UW ended up third in 9:44.15.
In a loaded women’s 5,000-meter field, senior Lindsay Flanagan, running unattached as she only has outdoor eligibility, took sixth overall in 16:12.90, a new indoor PR. All-American Megan Goethals was solid in sixth, but not at her usual pace, going 16:35.86.
The meet picks right back up tomorrow morning at 9:15 a.m., with the invitational sections on the track slated for 3 p.m.
