WALNUT, Calif. - A small group of current and former Huskies completed competition today at the Mt. SAC Relays.
Frederick jumped a wind-aided 25-2 3/4, his best outdoor mark this season. 2004 Olympic gold medalist Dwight Phillips took first in the event, jumping 27-feet, the best by an American this year.
Sophomore Zack Midles was seventh in the hammer throw, with a best mark of 195-1.
Former Husky NCAA Champion Ryan Brown won the men's 800m Invitational, defeating long-time Pac-10 rival Duane Solomon of USC in a time of 1:47.18. Brown currently runs for Asics.
Other notables in action included former Husky Carly Dockendorf, who cleared 13-1 1/2 in the pole vault competing for Nike Canada, and current UW assistant coach Kelly Strong, who ran 4:23.77 in the 1500-meter invitational competing for Asics.
A much larger roster of Husky athletes will compete in Eugene, Ore. next weekend at the Oregon Invitational.
