Huskies, Redhawks run in non-scoring season opener at Magnuson Park...

SEATTLE--In what was essentially a glorified workout for both teams, Washington and SeattleU opened the season with the UW/SU Open Meet on a sunny Friday afternoon at Magnuson Park.

Coach Greg Metcalf sat out his front line performers in this non-scoring meet, including top returning runners Katie Flood and Megan Goethals, along with Liberty Miller, Justine Johnson, Lindsay Flanagan and Eleanor Fulton.

The Washington women ran together for the entire three-mile distance consisting of two 1.5 mile loops of the park, with Kayla Evans (left, #644/photo by Paul Merca) credited with the win in 18:00 and Chelsea Orr second in the same time.

Maddie Meyers, competing unattached, took third in 17:19, with the Huskies' Breanna Huschka fourth in the same time.

Baylee Mires was fifth in 17:19, and Anna Dailey rounded out Washington's top five in sixth in the same time.

SeattleU was led by Hannah Mittelstaedt in ninth at 17:32, followed by Sophie Curatilo in tenth at 17:41.

Jennifer Stolle was eleventh at 17:52, followed by Rebecca Lassere in 13th at 17:59, and Madison Davis in 14th at 18:04 to round out the top five for SeattleU.

In the men's 4.5 mile (three laps) race, SeattleU's Erik Barkhaus (#617/photo by Paul Merca), the reigning Great West 10000 meter champion, took a narrow victory over the Huskies' Bryan Tibaduiza, with both running the same time of 22:23.

The Redhawks then put three other runners in the top six, with Graham Kinzel-Grubbs in third at 22:38, Matthew McClement in fourth at 22:39, and Jeff Baklund in sixth at 23:17.

Nathan McLaughlin rounded out SeattleU's top five in tenth at 23:22.

After Tibaduiza, Angelo Comeaux was fifth for the Huskies in 23:10, followed by Kyle Rae in seventh in 23:18, Dylan Morin in eighth at 23:19, and Bernie Hagan in ninth at 23:20.

Like the women's squad, Metcalf elected to sit several of his top runners, including Mike Miller, Meron Simon, and Rob Webster, Jr.

The Huskies, who just assembled as a team on Monday, head out to their annual training camp before hosting the Sundodger Invitational on September 15th at Lincoln Park in West Seattle.

The next meet for the Redhawks will be the National Catholic Championships on September 14th in South Bend, Indiana, hosted by Notre Dame. SeattleU will also enter a squad at the Sundodger Invitational.
