LAST TIME OUT (Arkansas Qualifier)
The Washington State University Track and Field program posted a solid day, both from the Cougar women and men at the Arkansas Qualifier Friday afternoon.
Charisma Taylor led the Cougars on the women's side with two second place finishes on the day. Taylor posted a time of 8.19 in the preliminary round of the 60-meter hurdles, a time that ties her personal best, and is also the current WSU record in the event. Taylor then went on to place second in the triple jump also with a mark of 43-feet 7 3/4 inches (13.30m). Skyler Walton ran a 7.49 in the 60-meter dash finals, a personal best and also the seventh fastest time in WSU history in the event as well.
The WSU men were led by both Mitch Jacobson and Zach Stallings who each recorded wins at the Arkansas Qualifier. Jacobson posted a win in the high jump with a mark of 6-feet 10 3/4 (2.10m), and Stallings took home first place in the mile event with a personal best of 4:02.04. Sam Brixey continued to dominate the 60m hurdles, placing first in the prelims, but finished second overall in the final with a time of 7.80.
