EUGENE, Ore. - Former Husky great Ashley Lodree reached the quarterfinals of the 100m hurdles today at the Olympic Track Trials, but did not finish her quarterfinal run. In the qualifying round Lodree finished 16th overall.

Running in the second of four heats, Lodree finished fourth in 13.39 seconds. The six-time All-American qualified for the quarters later in the day, but was unable to finish that race, which was won by Kellie Wells in 12.82.

Heading into Sunday's final day, the only remaining athlete with UW ties is Will Conwell who will compete in the men's discus. Conwell, a 2006 graduate and current volunteer assistant coach, placed 9th in the preliminary round. The final gets underway at 2:20 p.m.
