Stephan Scott-Ellis and Cougs' 4 x 1 win at Stanford Invitational...

PALO ALTO, California--Washington State's Stephan Scott-Ellis (left/photo by Paul Merca) and the Cougars' 4 x 100 meter relay squad emerged victorious to highlight day 2 of the Stanford Invitational at Cobb Track and Angell Field on the campus of Stanford University.

After fouling out of the invitational long jump, Scott-Ellis turned around and won the collegiate section of the triple jump with a season best mark of 51-1 (15.57m).

Washington State's squad of Greg Hornsby, Trevor Rogers, Brett Blanshan, and Andre McBride took the sprint relay race, winning in a time of 40.85 seconds, as the Washington Huskies were disqualified for a zone violation on the third exchange.

The Dawgs had a pair of impressive performances in the 4 x 400 meter relays, as the men's team of Quadelle Satterwhite, James Alaka, Dan Sanders and Andrew Prentice ran 3:09.38 to finish third overall behind Notre Dame (3:06.71) and Minnesota (3:09.12).  

It was the fastest time by a Husky foursome since 2008.

The women's team of Kayla Stueckle, Baylee Mires, Gianna Woodruff, and Krista Armstead ran 3:43.15, the fastest time by a Washington squad since 2000, and the seventh fastest time in school history, as they finished fourth behind Arizona (3:35.44), Notre Dame (3:37.84), and Stanford (3:39.07).

Washington State Garrett Gerling and Josiah Sims went 2-3 in the finals of the men's 110 hurdles, as both clocked 14.53, behind winner Teivaskie Lewin's 14.28 into a -0.1 wind.  The Huskies' Shayne Moore was fourth in 14.57.

The Cougs' Shawna Fermin finished fifth in the 200, running a season best 24.19.

Both Washington and Washington State will see each other for the third consecutive time this outdoor season at next week's Pepsi Team Invitational at Hayward Field on the campus of the University of Oregon.
