Washington State high jumper Trent Arrivey (left/photo courtesy WSU Sports Information) was one of three competitors to reach NCAA Provisional Qualifying marks Saturday at the Seventh Annual WSU Open Indoor, a two-day meet held at WSU's Indoor Practice Facility.
Arrivey, a junior All-American from Woodinville, Wash., high jumped 7-feet, 1/4 inch (2.14m) to win the men's event. Idaho had two women reach NCAA PQ standards. K.C. Dahlgren won the pole vault after clearing 12-11 1/2 (3.95m) and Mykael Bothum won the shot put with a toss of 51-7 1/4 (15.73m) which also broke the meet record she set last year (49-9 1/4).
Cougar Moreno Zapata (Lakewood, Wash.) tied the meet record with his winning triple jump of 50- 1/2 (15.25m).
WSU's Robert Williams (Riverside, Calif.) edged out All-American teammate Jeshua Anderson to win the 60m hurdles. Williams ran a personal-record time of 7.95 seconds and Anderson also PRd in a time of 8.00 in the final. In the hurdles prelims, Cougars Barry Leavitt (8.21) and Trevor Habberstad (8.39) also PRd.
Other WSU men winning events were Marlon Murray in the 60m dash (6.86 after running a PR in the prelim of 6.85), Joe Abbott in the 400m dash (49.93), David Hickerson in the 800m (1:57.0), and Justin Englund in the mile (4:24.26). Abbott and Englund are freshmen who made their collegiate debuts with wins in crimson uniforms.
Besides finishing second in the 60 meter hurdles, NCAA 400 meter champion Jeshua Anderson finished second in the 800m, running 1:58.63, behind Hickerson.
Cougar women seeing victories Saturday included Brianne Brown in the 400m dash (1:01.09), All-American Anna Layman in the 800m (2:14.42), Amanda Stewart in the high jump (PR of 5-7, 1.70m), and Jessica Yates in the triple jump (37-2 1/2, 11.34m).
Other notable performances for the Cougs included Amanda Andrews' second place in the mile with a PR time of 5:05.41, Kendall Mays' runner-up finish in the pole vault after clearing a PR of 12-7 1/2 (3.85m).
"I'm really happy with the way we competed. Some people aren't happy with their performance but I always want them hungry for more. For the most part I would say we were pretty good today," WSU Head Coach Rick Sloan said.
Next weekend the Cougars will host the Cougar Indoor Invitational meet with team scoring. WSU will be joined by teams from Eastern Washington, Idaho, and Sacramento State.
