It's "Hammer Time" Saturday in Lacey, as all four Washington D2 schools compete at Saint Martin's...

All four Washington Division II schools, plus Seattle University will converge onto the campus of Saint Martin’s University in Lacey Saturday, as the Saints host the Jay Hammer meet on their campus track, with field events starting at 10 am, and the first running event underway at 10:30 am.

With big meets coming up next week in Southern California, most of the top athletes from those schools are either taking the meet off, or competing in other events, though according to the start lists posted by Saint Martin’s, some notable GNAC leaders are competing in their primary events, namely field event athletes, led by Western Washington’s Anna Paradee (above/photo courtesy GNAC) in the pole vault.

Paradee goes into the Jay Hammer meet as the conference leader in the vault, clearing 13-0.35 (3.97m) to win the WWU Quad Team Meet last week in Bellingham, a mark that’s #4 in NCAA Division II so far this season.

The time schedule, and start lists for the Jay Hammer meet are available on the event’s home page, which can be accessed here.

Meanwhile, Eastern Washington hosts its only home meet of the season Friday and Saturday at Roos Field on the EWU campus, as the Eagles host the annual Arnie Pelluer Invitational.

Gonzaga will have most of its athletes competing in the meet, as will Portland State.

Washington and Washington State have the weekend off, before they venture to Southern California next weekend.

NOTE:  The Great Northwest Athletic Conference, and the sports information offices of Saint Martin’s University and Eastern Washington University contributed to this report.
