SEATTLE – In their first race together this outdoor season, longtime teammates and All-America duo Haley Herberg and Allie Schadler finished side by side with two of the fastest 5,000-meter times in UW history. Herberg ran 15:31.14 tonight at the Payton Jordan Invitational at Stanford, and Schadler was a half-step back in 15:31.29.
Those times, PRs for both, put Herberg and Schadler at No. 2 and No. 3 in UW history. It also puts them to 10th and 11th in the NCAA this season based on marks entering the weekend, and easily locks up spots at NCAA West Prelims in May, which was the main focus of the night.
Herberg, Schadler, and Tibebu Proctor are the only three Huskies who stopped at Stanford this week, all three looking for Prelim qualifiers. Proctor finished a great 10,000-meters run after 11 p.m. tonight, placing 10th overall in 28:38.34, just seven seconds off his career-best. That will put him in the top-25 in the West this season, with the top-48 advancing to Prelims.
At the Fresno State Invitational, the men's and women's hammer throws set the stage for a full day of action on Saturday. The Dawgs came away with a victory on the men's side, as All-American Jayden White had the second-best mark of his career, throwing 226-0 to win. That was just a foot off his PR set earlier this season.
Senior Connor Jost had his best toss on his sixth and final throw, going 205-7 to place third today. And Sam Van Peursem had a mark of 179-4.
Beatrice Asomaning threw a new PR for the women, going 179-3, adding a little more than a foot to her previous best.
The rest of the UW travel squad will get going at Fresno State on Saturday, with field events beginning at 10 a.m. and track events at 1 p.m.
