Six Cougars, seven Huskies in field for NCAA Indoor Championships...

Washington State University will be represented by six competitors at the NCAA Division I Indoor Track and Field Championships, March 11 & 12, at the Rhonda and Frosty Gilliam Indoor Track Stadium at the McFerrin Athletic Center located on the Texas A&M campus in College Station, Texas.

Joe Abbott (800m), Holly Parent (high jump) and the men's 4x400m relay squad of Greg Hornsby, Brandon Dawson, Jacob Sealby and Jeshua Anderson are set to compete.

For the Washington Huskies, they'll be led by defending NCAA pole vault champ Scott Roth, and Pac 10 pole vault champ Ryan Vu (left/photo of Vu, Roth with back turned, and vault coach Pat Licari by Paul Merca).

Also making the trip for the Dawgs are All-American heptathlete Jeremy Taiwo, along with 3000m runner Colton Tully-Doyle, and miler James Cameron, who stormed onto the NCAA field by becoming the fourth Husky in school history to break 4:00 in the mile with his 3:58.51 mark at last Saturday's UW Final Qualifier in Seattle.

Rounding out the Washington squad are freshmen 3000-meter runners Katie Flood and Megan Goethals, who both posted automatic qualifying marks at last week's UW Final Qualifier.

Other athletes with Washington affiliations competing at the NCAA championships include Stanford's Stephanie Marcy (Sequim) in the women's 3000; Stanford's Miles Unterreiner (Gig Harbor) in the 5000m; Arizona's Abdi Hassan (Nathan Hale) and Oregon's Michael Berry (Rainier Beach) in the men's distance medley; and Kansas' Andrea Geubelle (Curtis) in the women's triple jump.
