SEATTLE-- The Washington men's and women's track teams captured 10 event titles at the Ken Foreman Invitational Saturday at Husky Stadium.
The meet, which was hosted by Seattle Pacific, featured teams from around the Northwest in a last chance qualifier for the Division II, III and NAIA teams to reach the NCAA Championships and a conference warm-up for the Division I teams of Washington, Portland and Portland State.
The men and women ran against competitors from several area universities and clubs, including Portland, Portland State, Central Washington, Western Washington, Seattle Pacific, Seattle University and Pacific Lutheran.
The Husky women claimed three event titles at the invitational, the 100m hurdles, shot put and 4x100m relay. Junior Kelsey Sheppard (Kirkland, Wash.) captured the 100m hurdles title in 14.40, while classmate Searan Salibian (Mukilteo, Wash.) snagged the shot put title with a toss of 43-7 1/4.
The UW men claimed seven event titles while guests at their own Husky Stadium. A mixture of both upper- and lower-classmen came through for the Huskies in front of a home crowd. Freshman Brad Goodrich (Maple Valley, Wash.) along with seniors Ja'Warren Hooker (Ellensburg, Wash.) and Greg Barber (McKinney, TX) as well as junior Joel Perry (Spokane, Wash.) and sophomore throwers Doug Jackson (Carnation, Wash.) and Mat Schwinn (Castle Rock, Wash.) captured the individual events for the Huskies.
Hooker nabbed the 400m title in only his second quarter-mile effort of the season, while Goodrich improved his Pac-10 qualifying mark in the 400m hurdles and Barber took the 110m hurdles. Jackson recorded a season-best mark in the shot put en route to victory, while Perry captured the high jump title and Schwinn won the discus event. The men's 4x400-meter relay team also won its event.

Next up for the Huskies is a trip to sunny Berkeley, Calif., for the Pacific-10 Conference Championships. The meet will pit Washington against eight other Pac-10 schools for the coveted Pac-10 conference title. USC won last year's men's title, while UCLA captured the women's. The Huskies finished tied for fourth and seventh respectively at the 2000 Pac-10s.
