Jeshua Anderson leads Washington contingent at USA Junior Championships...

Four athletes from the state of Washington are competing this weekend at the USA Junior Track & Field Championships in Columbus, Ohio.

Washington State University’s NCAA champion at the 400 meter hurdles, Jeshua Anderson leads the state’s contingent in their bid to earn spots on Team USA’s squad for the IAAF World Junior Championships in Bydgoszcz, Poland July 8-13.

Anderson, who owns a personal best of 48.69 in winning the national collegiate title in Des Moines, Iowa, enters the junior nationals as a heavy favorite to earn a spot on the national junior team.

Also competing at the junior nationals is WSU javelin thrower Marissa Tschida, who was third in last year’s Pan Am Junior Championships as a member of Team USA.

University of Washington hammer thrower Elisa Bryant, javelin thrower Amanda Peterson of Eastern Washington University, and Spokane Community College sprinter Chanel James round out the contingent from the state of Washington.

Results from the junior championships will be posted here…
