T&F Continues to Shine During Outdoor
SPOKANE, Wash. – The Washington State University Track and Field program finished up competition up north at Whitworth University from Boppell Track Friday afternoon.
Carolina Ulloa-Daza once again provided a stellar performance in her second outdoor meet as a Cougar, winning the hammer throw with a mark of 191-feet 3 inches (59.65m). This throw breaks Ulloa-Daza's previous Washington State freshman record in the event from last week and moves her up to second all-time in Cougar history as well. Emily Coombs added another day one victory for WSU, her second of the outdoor season in the pole vault as she cleared 12-feet 10 3/4 inches (3.93m). Skyler Walton took home first in the 100-meter dash with a time of 11.75w for a personal best, and her time also ranks sixth all-time in WSU history as well. Kaylee Sowle also posted an impressive performance in the high jump, not only recording a personal best on the day, but setting a Boppell Track record in the women's high jump with a mark of 5-feet 9 1/4 inches (1.76m). The Washington State women's relay squad picked up another win this outdoor season, as the team of Jordyn Tucker, Skyler Walton, Jasneet Nijjar, and Elise Unruh-Thomas placed first overall in the 4x100-meter relay with a time of 46.37. The WSU women finished the Whitworth Invite with nine overall victories throughout the meet as well to continue a solid start to the outdoor season.
The WSU men saw multiple victories throughout the two-day meet as well, including Mitch Jacobson in the high jump with a clearance of 6-feet 9 3/4 inches (2.08m). John Kolb continued to look impressive in a Cougar uniform as he recorded a win in the discus throw with a mark of 173-feet 2 inches (52.80m). The Cougar men's relay squad did not disappoint as they earned yet another victory this season as the team of De'antae Choates, Ja'Maun Charles, Ethan Willems, and Blake Deringer took first with a time of 41.29 overall.
