HOUSTON—Washington State University alum Jeshua Anderson (left/photo by Paul Merca), overcoming the disappointment of not qualifying for the US Olympic team, notched his second win of the series over the 400 hurdles at the American Track League stop at Wendel Track & Holloway Field on the campus of Rice University Saturday night.

Anderson, who won the first stop of the ATL series in Atlanta last month, ran 49.48 to easily turn back Nigeria’s Miles Ukaoma, who ran 49.77.

In other events involving Washington affiliated athletes, Seattle Pacific grad McKayla Fricker was third in the women’s 800 in 2:01.29, as US Olympian Ajee Wilson won in 1:59.98.

University of Washington alum Diamara Planell Cruz, competing in her last meet before heading to Rio as a member of the Puerto Rican team, failed to clear the opening height in the pole vault of 13-9.25 (4.20m), as another US Olympian, Sandi Morris won in an American record 16-2 (4.93m).
