Linfield's Catherine Street sets NCAA D3 pole vault mark at UW Open...

SEATTLE--The three day track and field extravaganza at the Dempsey Indoor Facility at the University of Washington ended with Sunday's UW Open meet featuring an assortment of athletes ranging from 2008 US Olympian Sharon Day, who competed the day before at the Husky Classic to local high school stars, with collegiate tracksters comprising the majority of those in attendance.

Day, the reigning USA heptathlon champion and 2008 Olympian in the high jump, contested the 60 meter hurdles, where she was fifth in 8.82. She also threw the shot put 44-6.25 (14.28m) to get sixth in her flight.

The best performance of the meet was in the women's pole vault as Catherine Street of Division III Linfield College of Oregon (left/photo courtesy Linfield College) set a new NCAA D3 record, skying 13-9.25 (4.20m).
