While the focus in the Pacific Northwest was on the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation championships, two athletes with Washington connections made the trek to Boston to compete in the USA Indoor Championships at the Reggie Lewis Center.

Bellevue's Mike Sayenko, a former University of Washington standout and Olympic Marathon Trials qualifier, ran 8:05.42 to finish 12th in the men's 3000.

Former Auburn High School standout Chris Lukezic was sixth in the men's 1500, running 3:47.51 in a clearly tactical race.

In significant conference action outside the MPSF, former Shelton High standout Alex McClary won the Southeast Conference 800 meter title, running a NCAA provisional time of 1:49.37.

Adam Stewart and David Howard of the Eastern Washington University track and field team won their respective events at the Big Sky Conference Indoor Championships in Flagstaff, Ariz.

Stewart, a sophomore from Yakima, Wash., won the high jump with a mark of 6-8 1/4. His previous best jump this season of 6-7 ranked him sixth in the Big Sky coming into this event.

The Eagles finished third in the Big Sky meet, behind Northern Arizona and Idaho State.

On the Division II side, Justin Felt of Seattle Pacific long jumped an NCAA provisional qualifier of 23-2 3/4 to win his event at the SPU Last Chance meet at the Dempsey Indoor Facility following the conclusion of the MPSF Championships.
