Other Washington pros & collegians competing in various venues around the USA this weekend...

While the focus is on this Friday and Saturday’s UW Invitational in Seattle, there is plenty of action involving Washington athletes around the country.

—In Lawrence, Kansas, University Place native Andrea Geubelle (left/photo by Paul Merca), who relocated in the fall to Lawrence, will open her 2018 campaign at the Jayhawk Classic Friday.

Geubelle, a 2016 US Olympian, will compete in the triple jump against an all-collegiate field.

--Earlier in the week, we noted that UW alum & 2016 US Olympian Jeremy Taiwo would open his 2018 season in Lubbock, Texas at the Texas Tech Classic Friday and Saturday in the heptathlon.

Here is the link to the start lists.  Note that Texas Tech will stream the meet ($) starting at 10 am, local time (8 am in Seattle).

We mistakenly posted that the Texas Tech Classic stream was free. We regret the error.

—Those athletes from Washington State not crossing the Cascades to compete at the UW Invitational will head to Albuquerque, New Mexico for the New Mexico Team Invitational at the Albuquerque Convention Center.

The WSU group headed to New Mexico primarily consists of sprinters, jumpers, and throwers. That group includes NCAA participants Alissa Brooks-Johnson and Brock Eager.

—In New York, Tacoma’s Marcus Chambers will run the 400 at the Norbert Sander Invitational at the famed Armory on Saturday.

Chambers will run against a field that includes Trinidad & Tobago’s Lalonde Gordon, the 2012 Olympic bronze medalist.

University of Washington alum Eleanor Fulton will compete in the women’s mile, while Brannon Kidder of the Seattle-based Brooks Beasts runs the men’s mile.

Seattle Prep grad Joe Hardy of the University of Wisconsin is entered in the men’s 3000.

—In Boston, Natalja Piliusina and Jessica Tonn of the Brooks Beasts are entered in the women’s mile and 3000 races at the John Thomas Terrier Classic on the campus of Boston University Friday night.

NOTE: The sports information office of Washington State, Boston University, University of Kansas and the Armory contributed to this report.
