PALO ALTO, Calif. - Washington junior Ja'Warren Hooker swept both sprint titles Sunday, including the 100-meter race during which he tied his own school record at the prestigious Stanford Invitational Track & Field Meet that featured numerous collegiate and world-class club competitors.

A product of Ellensburg (Wash.) High School, Hooker clocked a time of 10.18-seconds, matching the school-record mark he established as a freshman in 1998. The winning time reached the automatic qualifying standard, ensuring Hooker a spot at the NCAA Championships, May 31-June 3 in Durham, N.C.

Hooker won his second Stanford 100-meter title. He won the championship in 1998, but was injured and unable to defend his crown at the 1999 Stanford Invitational.

Hooker registered a winning time of 20.58 in the 200 meters, outracing Alvin Harrison whose runner-up time was 20.77.

Another Washington athlete who secured an NCAA berth was senior David Bazzi who finished seventh in a high-caliber men's 5,000-meter field with an automatic qualifying time of 13:47.63.

Husky senior Ben Lindsey finished second in both the discus (198-7) and shot put (62-2 1/4) competitions.

The Washington women's team featured three NCAA provisional qualifying marks by distance runners. Seniors Margaret Butler (9:20.35) and Cami Matson (9:26.38) placed ninth and 13th, respectively, in the 3,000-meter race. Junior Kara Syrdal finished 20th in a world-class women's 5,000-meter field (16:46.55).

The Husky track and field teams return to action Saturday, competing in Pullman at the Washington State Dual Meet.
