Jordan Boase breaks UW 400m school record held by Ja'Warren Hooker

TEMPE, Arizona--Junior Jordan Boase (left/photo courtesy University of Washington) won the 400-meter invitational race, setting a new meet record with a time of 44.82 at the Sun Angel Classic on the campus of Arizona State University Saturday.

Boase, a product of Bothell High School, who took third in the 400-meter dash at NCAA Indoors, made his outdoor debut Saturday after being held out last week due to a sore back.

His time eclipsed the previous Washington school record of 44.91 set in the Olympic year of 2000 by Ja'Warren Hooker, who went on to earn a spot on the US Olympic 4 x 400m relay pool that season.
