Felnagle gets fourth at BAA Invitational road mile...

BOSTON--Tacoma native Brie Felnagle finished fourth in the Boston Athletic Association Invitational road mile Sunday.

Competing on a three-lap course that ended on the finish line of Monday's Boston Marathon, the former Bellarmine Prep and University of North Carolina All-American was steps away from a very heated battle between 2009 champion Anna Pierce, Serbia's Marina Muncan and Treniere Moser which took some time before a winner was declared.

Muncan was declared the winner in 4:58.7, with Pierce and Moser second and third at 4:58.8.

Felnagle's final time was 4:59.1.

In Ellensburg on Saturday, Central Washington's Torrie Self, currently fourth on the NCAA Division II performance list this season in the hammer, had the top performance of the day at the Spike Arlt Invitiational meet, hosted by the Wildcats.

Self won the hammer with a top throw of 181 feet, 2 inches (55.23m) on her second toss of the day, topping the previous stadium record of 177 feet, 1 1/4 inches by Jennifer Dunkin of Western Oregon at the 2003 Great Northwest Athletic Conference Championships.

Host Central Washington swept both team titles, scoring 203.5 points to Seattle Pacific by 12.5 points, and scoring 237.5 to beat runner-up Spokane CC which scored 123.5 points.

Most of the state's Division II schools will be in action next week at either the Western Washington University Twilight meet in Bellingham, or the Oregon Relays in Eugene.

Complete results from the Spike Arlt Invitational are available here.
