Bellingham, Spokane, and Eugene is where you'll find the state's NCAA Division I and II teams competing this weekend...

While not quite as scattered as last weekend when all nine of this state’s NCAA Division I and II schools were all over the country, the state's nine Division I and II schools are staying in the Pacific Northwest this weekend:

The weekend kicks off Friday at 2 pm at Bellingham’s Civic Field as WESTERN WASHINGTON hosts SEATTLE PACIFIC, SAINT MARTIN’S, and the University of British Columbia in the WWU Team Invitational meet.

According to information on the Vikings’ track & field site, the WWU Team Invitational, which is one of two home meets that the Vikings will host this season, is a meet to address the need for additional competitive opportunities in all events.

Seattle Pacific's outstanding multi-event specialist, Scout Cai (left/photo by Paul Merca) is expected to compete in several events, including the long jump,

Meanwhile, EASTERN WASHINGTON, CENTRAL WASHINGTON, GONZAGA, and SEATTLE UNIVERSITY are scheduled to compete in the 11th annual Washington Against the Region or WAR XI at Spokane Falls Community College Friday and Saturday.

The men’s and women’s 10000 will be run on Friday, along with the men’s and women’s hammer, with all other events contested Saturday, beginning at 9 am.

The time schedule and heat sheets for the meet can be accessed through the release posted by Gonzaga University here.

In what may be a preview of The Dual between cross state rivals WASHINGTON and WASHINGTON STATE, the Huskies and Cougars head to Eugene for the annual Pepsi Team Invitational hosted by the University of Oregon at Historic Hayward Field.

The meet will also feature the squad from Brigham Young University, with individual events scored 9-7-6-5-4-3-2-1, and relays 9-7-6-5.

Action at Hayward Field begins at 11:30 am with the men’s hammer, while running events begin at 2 pm, and go until 5:20 pm.
