Jordan Boase gets third in Rabat; Ginnie Crawford wins Jim Bush meet at Mt. SAC...

RABAT, Morocco--Former University of Washington All-American Jordan Boase (left/photo courtesy University of Washington) continued his overseas tour Sunday with a third place finish in the men's 200 meter dash at the Meeting International Mohammed VI d'Athlétisme in the Moroccan capital.

Boase, the Bothell HS grad, who now trains in Beaverton on the Nike world campus, ran a season best of 20.52, to finish behind Belgium's Jonathan Borlee (20.42) and Jamaica's Ainsley Waugh (20.52).

Jamaica's Asafa Powell pulled up in the featured 100m dash with a "sharp pain" in his right hamstring, putting in doubt a challenge to reigning world champion Usain Bolt and Steve Mullings, who clocked 9.80 in Eugene to win the Nike Prefontaine Classic.

In other happenings over the weekend, Ginnie Crawford won the 100 meter hurdles at the Jim Bush Southern Cal USATF Championships Saturday on the campus of Mt. San Antonio College in Walnut.

Crawford, the Rainier Beach alum and three-time world championships team member, clocked 12.75 for the victory.

Washington alum Falesha Ankton finished sixth in the race with a time of 13.57.
