DES MOINES, Iowa -- Freshman Ja'Warren Hooker won the 100-meter race to remain undefeated in collegiate races and led off Washington's victorious 400-meter relay team Friday during the first day of the Drake Relays track & field meet.

Hooker, a product of Ellensburg High School, easily won the men's 100 meters in 10.43-seconds. His nearest competitor was Tony Branch of Iowa who posted a time of 10.73 in another heat. The victory was Hooker's sixth straight in collegiate 100-meter races. He has not lost in 10 outdoor sprint races this spring, including three 200-meter outings and one 400 meter win.

The Husky 4 x 100 relay unit shaved over one second of their season best, registering a winning time of 3:07.66. Baylor finished second in 3:08.31.

Sophomore Ben Lindsey placed fourth in the men's discus with a throw of 184-feet, 7-inches while Justin St. Clair was an eight in the javelin with a mark of 202-11.

Junior Keisha Griffis ran a second-place time of 58.38 in the women's 400-meter hurdles and sophomore Anna Aoki was third in the 3,000-meter event at 9:47.64.
