Malone Throws NCAA Automatic Mark in Javelin in Linfield Icebreaker

March 2, 2002

McMINNVILLE, Ore. - With one week left in the indoor season, the University of Oregon women's track and field team got a jump on the outdoor season by competing in the Linfield Icebreaker Invitational Saturday.

Sophomore javelin thrower Sarah Malone led the squad with her second best throw ever (first, 170-9) and won the competition by more than 11 feet ahead of freshman teammate Elisa Crumley (second, 159-4) and junior Charyl Weingarten (third, 146-4). Malone's mark easily met the NCAA automatic mark of 168-11, while Crumley's mark outdistanced the provisional standard of 150-11 and moved her to third all-time for the Ducks in the event.

Other Duck winners included junior Janette Davis (100, 12.17), freshman Michelle Donovan (400, 60.18), unattached entrant and junior Alicia Snyder-Carlson (800, 2:19.50), redshirt freshman Laura Harmon (1,500, 4:48.90), redshirt junior Lucretia Larkin (100 hurdles, 15.27), junior transfer Mary Murphy (high jump, 5-6), freshman Clarice Hayward-Lee (triple jump, correct mark unavailable), junior Mary Etter (shot put, 44-7, discus, 160-0), junior Jordan Sauvage (hammer, 166-2) and the 4x100 relay (48.86).

Among the Ducks' efforts Saturday, Etter (shot put, 44-7, discus, 160-0) earned Pac-10 invites in both events, as did the team's top trio in the javelin.

Looking ahead to next weekend, a pair of Duck pole vaulters -- redshirt juniors Niki Reed and Becky Holliday -- look forward to the NCAA Indoor Championships, Fri.-Sat., March 8-9 in Fayetteville, Ark.

The Duck women open their home outdoor slate the following weekend at Hayward Field, in Eugene, Sat., March 16.
