WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - University of Washington sophomore Justin St. Clair was named the Pacific-10 Conference men's track & field athlete of the week, Commissioner Thomas Hansen announced Tuesday.
St. Clair reached the NCAA provisional qualifying standard in the javelin with a winning mark of 225-feet, 9-inches during the Washington Outdoor Classic on Saturday at Husky Stadium. He added over three feet to his previous career-best javelin performance, registering a mark that ranks ninth among all-time Husky javelin competitors.
A product of Tacoma's Franklin Pierce High School, St. Clair finished seventh at the Pac-10 Championship Meet last spring.
St. Clair and his Washington teammates travel to California this weekend to compete at the San Diego Invitational on Saturday.
