The University of Washington today concluded three days of track and field competition at Dempsey Indoor with the UW Small College Invitational, pitting several Husky athletes against lower-division collegiate teams and local club squads.

As he did in Sunday's high school meet at Dempsey Indoor, 16-year-old Darren Woods stole the spotlight away from the collegiate squads. Woods, competing for club team Self Esteem Through Athletics, won the 200 meters in a scintillating 22.24 seconds, a mark that would currently rank among the best in the nation collegiately.

On Sunday, Woods bested his own week-old state prep record in the 400 meters with a 48.42-second victory, the fastest 400-meter time in the nation by a high-schooler this season.

A pair of Husky women earned event victories, including true freshman Cherron Davis in the shot put (45-3 1/2) and senior team captain Zee Ogarro in the 60-meter hurdles (8.97).

In the pole vault, junior school-record holder Sandy Erickson equaled the second-best mark ever at UW with a vault of 11-11 3/4 in a second-place finish, while former Husky Matt Phillips just missed qualifying for the 2002 U.S. National Championships, settling for a mark of 17-6 1/2.

With three home meets in the past two weeks now behind them, the Huskies take to the road to meet a trio of collegiate foes in the University of Nebraska Quad in Lincoln on Saturday, before returning to Dempsey Indoor for the UW Quad Classic, Feb. 2.
