Field Athletes Get A Workout In Tacoma
The quintet of throwers down at the Texas Relays weren't the only Husky field athletes to see action this weekend. Another group headed down I-5 to Tacoma to the JD Shotwell Invitational, hosted by the University of Puget Sound at Baker Stadium. The meet even produced a new UW Top-10 mark on the women's side.
Most of the UW entrants stood up very well against the local colleges in competition. Freshman Ally Mueller stood out in the women's javelin, as she took second with a mark of 134-feet, 1-inch, that ranks seventh in school history with the new implement.
Anyka Ozog also took second in the discus with a best of 117-7, and another rookie, Jordin Seekins, was sixth in the javelin at 122-0.
On the men's side, sophomore Richard Anderson won the shot put with a mark of 50-9 1/2, close to his personal-best. Recent addition Jimmy Brookman also won the javelin with a throw of 200-9.
Finally, sophomore Jeremy Lashinske was second in the pole vault with a clearance of 15-5.
