SEATTLE -- Three marquee championships track and field meets get underway this week, and 18 past, present, or future Dawgs will be taking part. The U.S. Track & Field Championships will see a number of Dawgs back to Eugene for the senior and U20 events, while the Canadian Championships feature three more Huskies competing in Langley, B.C.
The three competitions all get underway on Thursday, June 23. The USA U20 meet goes until Saturday, while the U.S. and Canadian senior meets run through Sunday.
At the USATF Championships, eleven athletes with Husky ties will compete. Among current Dawgs, Luke Houser is entered in the 1,500-meters, Cass Elliott is in the 400-meter hurdles, and Anna Gibson and Allie Schadler are in the women's 1,500-meters.
Husky alumni in Eugene include Julius Diehr in the men's steeplechase and Katie Rainsberger in the women's steeplechase. Eleanor Fulton is entered in both the 1,500-meters and the 5,000-meters. Olivia Gruver will be in the women's pole vault.
Volunteer assistant coach Sam Prakel will also race the men's 1,500-meters.
But there are also some future Huskies competing in the senior meet. Princeton's Sam Ellis, the NCAA bronze medalist in the 1,500-meter final won by UW's Joe Waskom, will be transferring to UW next season. Ellis is in the men's 1,500-meters along with Houser and Prakel.
The Husky women are getting another NCAA medalist from the Ivy League, as Kayley DeLay out of Yale will join the program for 2022-23. DeLay just ran the third-fastest time in NCAA history in the NCAA Outdoor steeplechase final, taking second in 9:25.08. DeLay ranks 19th in the world this year and fourth in the U.S. in the steeple, and she will run it again in Eugene this week.
The U.S. U20 Championships are held at Hayward in conjunction with the senior championships. Several current Husky freshmen will compete, including NCAA seventh-place finisher and school record-holder Nathan Green in the 1,500-meters, West Prelims qualifier Matthew Wilkinson in the 400m hurdles, and Jack Olsen in the javelin. Olsen redshirted the 2022 season. Incoming women's pole vaulter Sarah Ferguson, who hails from Lexington, Ky., will be in the U20 women's vault.
Up to the north, a trio of Dawgs will compete at the Bell Canadian Track & Field Championships. Kieran Lumb is entered in both the 1,500m and 5,000m, Roan Allen will throw the javelin, and Madison Heisterman is entered in the women's 1,500-meters.
