WEEKEND WRAPUP: Whitworth's Andrew Bloom throws early season NCAA D3 leader in javelin...

While most of Washington’s schools took the weekend off after the conclusion of the regular indoor track & field season (the NCAA championships are upcoming March 10-11th), Seattle Pacific, Western Washington, Whitworth, and Saint Martin’s opened up their 2017 outdoor season in Tacoma at the Ed Boitano Invitational hosted by the University of Puget Sound.

From a national perspective, the best mark of the day came from Division III Whitworth’s Andrew Bloom (left/photo by Paul Merca) in the javelin.

The reigning NCAA D3 champion opened up with a winning toss of 218-1 (66.48m), just short of his personal best of 219-2 (66.80m) to take the national lead in D3.

The women’s javelin was also a highlight of the meet, as Saint Martin’s Deanna Avalos threw 143-5 (43.71m) to score an NCAA D2 provisional qualifier.
