In the men's 600, former Husky and 2009 world championships team member Ryan Brown (left/photo by Paul Merca) is now out;

The men's pole vault just got stronger, as the 2009 NCAA indoor and outdoor champion Jason Colwick, formerly from Rice University, steps into the Dempsey to face 2010 indoor champ Scott Roth from the UW, along with 2010 Pac 10 champ Ryan Vu of the Huskies, and NCAA indoor and outdoor Division II champ Ryan Brown of Western Washington;

In the men's weight throw, Michael Mai of the US Army, a 2009 world championships team member is entered.
