For many of the state's Division I and II track and field athletes, this is the final weekend for those on the borderline to make their cases to their coaches to take them to next weekend's championship meets.
Western Washington will host the WWU Twilight Meet in Bellingham Friday, where most of the schools from the west side of the state will compete, including SeattleU, Seattle Pacific, St. Martin's, and Central Washington. With the University of Washington not having a track facility outdoors this year, they will send a handful of athletes up Interstate 5 to Bellingham.

The Huskies will also send a small contingent of athletes to compete in Saturday's Oregon Twilight meet.
Most of Washington State's athletes looking to tune up or make their cases to their coaches will participate in the Vandal Jamboree in Moscow on Friday and Saturday. Eastern Washington will also have athletes in Moscow as they prep for next week's Big Sky Championships in Bozeman, Montana.
Washington State's Jake Baertlein, a senior from Portland, was named by the Pac-12 Conference as its male field event athlete of the week for April 23-29, after he cleared a personal best of 5.21m/17-1, surpassing his previous best by nearly one foot (4.93m/16-2). The pole vault win provided five crucial points to the Cougars in their 87-76 win over UW. Baertlein’s mark is tied for eighth-best in WSU all-time pole vault records, tied for 43rd nationally and is fifth-best this season in the Pac-12.
