More Fun Fayetteville Weather
UPDATE: All running events have been pushed back about one hour, and the CBS College Sports TV window has been moved back as well. The show will now air from 7-10 p.m. Central time. All field events have also been moved to tonight, but the weather looks like it should hold for the rest of the day.
For the third time in the four days that the Huskies have been in Fayetteville, a large thunderstorm passed over the area, dropping rain in sheets and prompting tornado warnings. Morning action at NCAA's was delayed once again, and while the worst of the storm seems to have passed, conditions are still very wet and gray. It remains to be seen if the start times for any of the Huskies will be affected. Washington's first participants today were to be Jared O'Connor and Scott Roth in the men's pole vault final, beginning at 3:45 p.m. Central.Today is the first day of action that will be televised live, as the CBS College Sports channel broadcasts from 6-9 p.m. Central time. That window covers all running events today, so there are still several hours for the weather to clear and the meet to be televised as planned. Huskies competing on the track this evening will include Mel Lawrence in the steeple final at 6:25 Central, Jordan Boase in the 400m semis at 7:25, and Katie Follett in the final of the 5,000-meters at 8:15. For Comcast subscribers in the Seattle area, CBS College Sports is channel 412.
Looking back at yesterday's action, the following photo gallery has been updated, and a post-race interview with Anita Campbell following her third-place finish in the 10,000-meters will be up shortly
