WSU's Trent Arrivey gets NCAA provisional mark...

Washington State sophomore Trent Arrivey (left, /courtesy WSU Sports Information) won the men's high jump, clearing an NCAA Provisional Qualifying height and personal-best of 7-feet, 1/4 inch (2.14m) Saturday at the Cougar Indoor Track & Field meet at the Washington State Indoor Facility.

This was the first collegiate seven-foot clearance for Arrivey who had cleared the height as a prep athlete in Woodinville, Wash. He led the Cougars to a one-two-three sweep in the event with freshman Ryan Deese the runner-up after clearing 6-9 3/4 (2.08m), and senior Kyle Eaton's height of 6-6 (1.98m) third.

WSU senior Rickey Moody won the men's heptathlon with a final score of 5,216 points, followed by Cougars Kyle Schauble (PR of 5,032 points) and Trevor Habberstad (4,611 points). In second-day events, Moody ran a 60m hurdles time of 8.31 seconds, pole vaulted 12-5 1/2 (3.80m), and ran the 1000m in a time of 3:06.02. Moody's score was a PR for him but just missed the NCAA provisional mark of 5,300 points.

Cougar women winners Saturday included Collier Lawrence in the 3000m (10:13.31), McKinnon Hanson in the high jump (5-6, 1.68m), and Sarah Burns in the triple jump (39-8, 12.09m). Princess Joy Griffey was the top collegian in the 60m dash (7.54) and Candace Missouri (freshman, Vancouver, Wash.) was the best collegian in the long jump with a leap of 18-10 (5.74m) in addition to her second-place finish in both the long jump (18-10, 5.74m) and the triple jump (38-9 3/4, 11.83m).
