Jan. 26, 2008
PULLMAN, Wash. -- Washington State sophomore Trent Arrivey won the men's high jump, clearing an NCAA Provisional Qualifying height and personal-best of 7-feet, 1/4 inch (2.14m) Saturday at the Cougar Indoor Track & Field meet at the Washington State Indoor Facility.
This was the first collegiate seven-foot clearance for Arrivey who had cleared the height as a prep athlete in Woodinville, Wash. He led the Cougars to a one-two-three sweep in the event with freshman Ryan Deese the runner-up after clearing 6-9 3/4 (2.08m), and senior Kyle Eaton's height of 6-6 (1.98m) third.
WSU senior Rickey Moody won the men's heptathlon with a final score of 5,216 points, followed by Cougars Kyle Schauble (PR of 5,032 points) and Trevor Habberstad (4,611 points). In second-day events, Moody ran a 60m hurdles time of 8.31 seconds, pole vaulted 12-5 1/2 (3.80m), and ran the 1000m in a time of 3:06.02. Moody's score was a PR for him but just missed the NCAA provisional mark of 5,300 points.
Cougar women winners Saturday included Collier Lawrence in the 3000m (10:13.31), McKinnon Hanson in the high jump (5-6, 1.68m), and Sarah Burns in the triple jump (39-8, 12.09m). Princess Joy Griffey was the top collegian in the 60m dash (7.54) and Candace Missouri (freshman, Vancouver, Wash.) was the best collegian in the long jump with a leap of 18-10 (5.74m) in addition to her second-place finish in both the long jump (18-10, 5.74m) and the triple jump (38-9 3/4, 11.83m).
WSU men claiming wins included Justin Woods in the 60m (6.84), Luke Lemenager in the 800m (1:55.50), Robert Williams in the 60m hurdles (PR time of 8.07), Moreno Zapata in the triple jump (PR of 49-3 1/2, 15.02m), and Matt Lamb in the shot put (54-7 1/2, 16.65m).

USC's Carol Rodriquez set a meet record with her winning 400m time of 55.78 seconds. Utah State's Amy Egan broke the meet record in the 800m with a time of 2:11.95. On the men's side of the ledger, USU's Nick Karren won the 400m dash with a meet record time of 48.66.
The team scoring (did not include the multi-events) was kept for NCAA sport requirement purposes but some of the schools did not field full teams. The Cougar men defeated EWU 87-29, defeated Idaho 87-28, and defeated Utah State 65-56. Utah State defeated EWU 79-34, and defeated Idaho 64-49 while Idaho defeated EWU 69-45. The WSU women defeated EWU 109-13, defeated Idaho 93-24, defeated Utah State 78-43, and defeated USC 83-34. Other team scores were USC over EWU 63-49 and over Idaho 53-49. Utah State defeated EWU 85.5-28.5, defeated Idaho 79-30, and downed USC 63-45. Idaho's women defeated EWU 50.5-47.5.
Next weekend the Cougars teams will split competition locations with a select group competing at the Sevigne Husker Invite in Lincoln, Nebraska, and the rest of the team competing at the McDonald's Collegiate Invite at the Kibbie Dome in Moscow, Idaho.
