FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. -- Senior thrower Adrienne Judie took runner-up honors in the women's weight-throw, posting an NCAA provisional qualifying mark of 63 feet, 6.75 inches in the first day of competition at the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Indoor Track and Field Championships hosted by the University of Arizona at the Walkup Skydome in Flagstaff Friday night.
Judie, who continues to turn in solid weight throw marks this season, did not exceed her personal best and current school record in the event (64-10.00) set last weekend at the ASU/UA/NAU Double Dual.
Day one of MPSF competition featured finals for the women's long jump, men's triple jump, men's and women's weight throw, women's pole vault, men's high jump and the men's and women's 3,000m. Preliminary races were also held for the sprints, as well as the 800m and the mile for both men and women.
In the team race, ASU's women are in fifth place with 19 points, while their male counterparts end the first day in eighth place with 6.50 points. Arizona leads the women's team race with 37 points, while Washington State heads up the men's team scoring with 29.50 points.
Also scoring for the Sun Devils this evening were sophomore Tiffany Greer in the long jump and freshman Ebon Glenn in the high jump. Greer, the defending MPSF women's long jump champion, placed third with a leap of 19-9.75. Glenn also placed third, clearing a height of 6-10.25. Senior Valerie Williams placed fifth in the long jump behind Greer, with a mark of 10-11.25.
Senior Sharesa Turner led the ASU women's sprinting corps, turning in the second-fastest 60m preliminary time of 7.71 (alt. adj.). Also advancing to the finals of the 60m is junior Christie Winkle, clocking a time of 7.80a. In the men's 60m, senior Vince Jones advances with a time of 6.78a, the third-fastest among competitors.
In the 60m hurdles, junior Tony Galaviz and redshirt-freshman Seneca Holmes advance to final competition. Galaviz posted the second-best time of 7.92a, while Holmes' time of 8.53a ranks fourth in the women's final.
