PROVO, Utah - Junior Ja'Warren Hooker won the 100 meters and eclipsed his own three-week-old Washington record in the 200, helping the Husky men's track and field team win the Brigham Young Tri-Meet on Saturday at BYU Track.

Hooker clocked a winning 200-meter time of 20.23 to shave .10 off the school standard of 20.33 that he established on April 15 in Tempe, Ariz. The previous Washington 200-meter record, a mark of 20.46 set by LaNoris Marshall in 1981, had endured for 19 years.

Hooker's time of 20.23 is the second-fastest among NCAA competitors this season and ties him for the No. 7 spot among all-time Pacific-10 Conference competitors. The Ellensburg (Wash.) High School product raced to a winning time of 10.29 in the 100 meters.

The Huskies won 10 of 19 men's events en route to their 155-point winning total. Host Brigham Young finished second with 142.5 points followed by Utah State with 85.5. BYU won the women's competition with 168 points. The UW women had a 127-point second-place tally followed by Utah State with 87.

Senior Sesilia Thomas, a Spanaway Lake (Wash.) High School graduate, claimed two women's event titles for the Huskies with winning efforts in the shot put (49-11 1/4) and discus (142-5).

Sophomore Kelsey Sheppard, from Lake Washington High School, placed second in the women's 400-meter hurdles with a time of 58.29 that is the fourth fastest in Husky history. She improved her NCAA provisional qualifying status with the nation's 13th best time.

Husky senior Jacob Predmore won two events, earning victories in the men's long jump (22-3 3/4) and triple jump (47-11 3/4). Predmore will compete for the Pac-10 decathlon title next weekend in Eugene, Ore.

The rest of the Washington track and field team will close out the regular season on Saturday, May 13 in the Seattle Pacific Invitational at Husky Stadium.
