Weekend roundup, July 2-3: Boase wins in Dutch town of Uden...

With the US elite domestic season all but over, the area's elite professional and collegiate track & field athletes have migrated to Europe or to Canada for the National Track League circuit.

Former Washington Husky Jordan Boase (left/photo by Mike Scott) picked up a victory Saturday in the 400 meters at the Mondo Keien Meeting in the Dutch town of Uden, running a modest 46.50, with Eric Kruger of Germany the nearest competitor at 46.92.
