SEATTLE - The dust from the record-breaking Husky Classic did not have a chance to settle as hundreds more athletes were back inside the Dempsey Indoor today for the annual UW Open Meet. Sunday's action featured mostly small college or high school competitors, but a handful of Huskies also got involved with big season-bests.
Freshman Logan Miller shot straight into the UW indoor Top-10 with a lifetime-best pole vault of 12-feet, 9.5-inches. That clearance was nine inches higher than her previous best this season and ties for eighth in the Husky records. Sophomore Kelly Mudlo also posted a big PR, clearing 12-feet for the first time and going well over it at 12-3 ½.
In the 60-meter hurdles, freshman Shayne Moore put together a great run to win the final in 8.15 seconds that was well under his previous season-best of 8.44 and already ranks the Blaine, Wash. native ninth in Husky history. It was the fastest by a Husky since James Fredrickson in 2007.
In the shot put ring, sophomore Richard Anderson only registered one legal throw but it was a big one, as he sent the shot 55-feet, 1.5-inches, nearly a four foot personal-best. That won him the event and would have scored a year ago at the MPSF Championships.
Also of note were the efforts of senior Korede Oyetuga, second in the weight throw with a mark of 50-10 ¼, and freshman Colton Dunn who was second in the 400-meter dash with a time of 50.32 seconds. Yet another freshman, Bryce Borer, cleared 16-feet in the pole vault for the first time this season, getting over 16-0 ¾. Borer has been working on the multis but clearly has great potential in the vault in and of itself.
