March 17, 2001

BERKELEY, Calif. -- Washington State University track and field teams opened the outdoor season in fine fashion with the Cougar women winning and the men finishing second at the Cal Quadrangular Meet, held Saturday, at Edwards Stadium/Goldman Track on the UC-Berkeley campus.

The Cougar women edged out UCLA, the 2001 NCAA Indoor Champions, by three points, 203 to 200. Cal was third at 149 with Washington fourth at 121.

On the men's side, UCLA won with 214 points to WSU's 181 for second. Cal was third at 155 with Washington last at 123. Dual meet results will not be available until Monday, March 19.

Arend Watkins ran an NCAA Automatic Qualifying time and personal-best record of 13.47 seconds to win the men's 110m high hurdles.

Four Cougar women reached NCAA Provisional Qualifying marks. Megan Maynard won the debut of the women's 3000m steeplechase in a PQ time of 11:02.39. In the 100m hurdles, WSU's Agneta Rosenblad finished second to UCLA's Michelle Perry, but clocked in at 13.51, for the PQ. Rosenblad won the long jump (6.04m/19-9 3/4). The other Cougar PQs came as Randi Smith won the 400m hurdles with a time of 59.02, and Andrea Thornton was third in the hammer with a throw of 57.10m/187-4.

Adding top placings in WSU's winning score were: Erin Reed first (23.99) and Ellannee Richardson second (24.26) in the 200m dash, Reed's second place finish in the 400m dash (54.65), Whitney Evans winning the high jump (1.77m/5-9 3/4), Casey Lektorich second (42.20m/138-5) and Evans third in the javelin, Angelita Green third in the 800m (2:11.75), Anna Blue third in the 1500m (4:37.91), and Ryan Gilmore third in the 5000m (17:11.44). Both WSU relay teams were second.

WSU's men finished one-two-three in the javelin with Ryan Nichols throwing 64.16m/210-6 for the win, followed by Bryan Jones (61.32m/201-2), and Curt Borland (60.90m/199-10). Matt Alverson won the high jump by clearing 2.15m/7-0 1/2. Benson Jones, just a week past his indoor All-America performances, won the triple jump (15.66m/51-4 1/2) and placed second in the long jump (7.48m/24-6 1/2).

Anson Henry ran lifetime-bests but was runner-up to UW's Ja'Warren Hooker's PQ times in both sprints. In the 100m dash, Hook ran 10.33 while Henry clocked in at 10.36, and in the 200m dash, Hooker finished in 20.57 while Henry ran a 21.17.
