Falcons get three wins at Emilie Mondor/Simon Fraser Invitational in Canada, plus weekend roundup...

BURNABY, British Columbia--Seattle Pacific's Brittany Aanstad put another NCAA automatic-qualifying javelin mark into the books on Saturday at the Emilie Mondor/Simon Fraser Invitational, although this one wasn't quite as far as her national-leading 161-11 toss last week in Spokane.

Aanstad, the senior from Lake Stevens, threw it 150 feet, 3 inches (45.80m) this time, to finish second behind Tiffany Perkins of the Langley Mustangs, who won with a mark of 165-0 (50.31m). She also was third in the high jump, going a season-best 5-3¾ (1.62m).

The Falcons won three individual events plus a relay in the women's meet at Simon Fraser University.

Senior Ali Worthen from Coos Bay, Oregon won the 100 hurdles in 14.82, and was second in the long jump at 17-10 1/4 (5.44m).

The Falcons' Trinna Miranda went 35 feet, 11½ inches (10.96m), barely shy of her season-best 36-0¾.

Sophomore Robyn Zeidler picked up a victory in the 5,000 meters in 18 minutes, 26.32 seconds, while the Falcons won the 4 x 400 relay in 3:51.86.
