Washington's Brooke Pighin wins javelin at WWU Twilight Meet...

BELLINGHAM--In what was a low key tune-up for next week's Pac-12 championships in Eugene, University of Washington senior Brooke Pighin (left/photo by Paul Merca) won the javelin competition at the Western Washington University Twilight Meet Friday night at Civic Stadium.

Pighin threw 149-2 (45.48m) to beat Seattle Pacific's Brittany Aanstad, who had a best of 141-7 (43.16m).

In what may be a preview of next week's GNAC championships, Western Washington's Karis Anderson won the pole vault with a leap of 12-5.5 (3.80m), turning back fellow 2012 NCAA D2 indoor qualifiers Kati Davis of Central Washington and Terra Schumacher of Seattle Pacific, who tied for second at 11-7 3/4 (3.55m).

Western's Emily Warman would have tied a 30-year old school record in the long jump, leaping 19-2 (5.84m); however, according to the final results, she had a wind reading of 3.0 meters per second, well over the allowable of 2.0 mps (the WWU release announced that she tied Donna Larry's 1982 mark).

The Vikings' Eleanor Siler was a double-event winner, taking both the women's 200 meters (25.49) and 400 (56.71).

The Huskies' Danny Shelton won the men's shot put with a toss of 49-1.5 (15.63m), a week after participating in the football team's spring game.

The majority of the results (several events missing) from the WWU Twilight Meet are available here.
