Boness Joins NCAA Provisional List with Win at Mountain Pacific Championships

Feb. 23, 2001

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. - University of Oregon junior Jason Boness put himself in position for his fourth NCAA trip in the high jump with his winning mark in the opening day of the Mountain Pacific Championships Friday at the University of Northern Arizona's Skydome.

The two-time All-American won the high jump with a season best of 7-2 1/4, which converts to 2.19 meters - a mark that has qualified for the NCAA Indoor Championships the past five years. In the same event, senior Kyley Johnson and sophomore Jake Horner finished seventh and eighth with final marks of 6-8 3/4.

In Friday's other field event finals, sophomore Foluso Akinradewo overcame a bout with the flu to take fourth in the triple jump (48-1), and sophomore Adam Kriz added sixth in the weigh throw (58-10).

Friday also featured qualifying rounds for many of the sprint and middle distance events.

In the 60-meter hurdles, freshman Jake Garlick (7.96), sophomore Terry Ellis (8.01) and Billy Pappas (8.17) rank third, fourth and fifth heading into Saturday's final.

Junior Ross Krempley ranked sixth among qualifiers in the 800 for Saturday's final with his time Friday of 1:56.32.

As a team, the Duck men are tied for third place with Arizona at 21 points, with Washington State leading the competition with 29 1/2 points, over UCLA (second, 27). Other teams in the top eight include Washington (fifth, 19), Utah State (sixth, 17), Stanford (seventh, 15) and Arizona State (eighth, 6.5).

'Overall I was pleased with our group's effort today,' Oregon assistant coach Bill Lawson said. 'We had outstanding performances by Jason Boness and our hurdle group, and the athletes that competed for us today put themselves in strong scoring position for tomorrow's finals.'

The Duck women did not travel to the meet, with UO individual Katie Crabb competing Saturday at a collegiate meet in Blacksburg, Va.
