The weekend ahead: OSU High Performance, SMU Last Chance, IAAF World Relays & Payton Jordan...

There are other meets this weekend involving Washington’s pro and college athletes this weekend in addition to the Washington/Washington State dual.  Here’s the rundown:


Eastern Washington along with Seattle University are in Corvallis for Friday’s OSU High Performance Meet at the Whyte Track & Field Center on the campus of Oregon State University.

In its short life, the Oregon State University High Performance meet has turned out to be a big event for the area’s colleges and universities as they try to get late marks to qualify for their conference championships.


Saint Martin’s University hosts the SMU Last Chance meet on its campus track facility in Lacey on Saturday, with all of the state’s Division II schools expected to send athletes.

As of 11:30 am, no start lists have been posted on the school’s web site.


The second annual IAAF World Relays takes place Saturday & Sunday at Thomas Robinson Stadium in Nassau, Bahamas.

Cas Loxsom of the Brooks Beasts is on the USA 4 x 800 meter relay pool, which runs on Saturday at 5:10 pm local time.

The IAAF World Relays will be shown on Universal Sports.


A number of area pros are entered in Saturday’s Payton Jordan Invitational at Cobb Track & Angell Field on the campus of Stanford University.

Several members of the Brooks Beasts will run at Stanford including Mark Wieczorek (800), Riley Masters (5000), Brie Felnagle (adidas) & Phoebe Wright (Nike) in the 1500; Angela Bizzarri & Amanda Mergaert (5000).

UW redshirt freshman Fred Huxham is entered in the 5000, while UW alums Megan Goethals and Lindsay Flanagan are in the 10000, along with Eastern Washington alum Mattie Suver.  Bellingham native Jake Riley is also entered in the 10000.  Washington State's Drew Jordan will skip the UW/WSU dual to run the 5000 at Stanford.
