Track & Field
NCAA Outdoor Championships
A record number of Huskies are ready to test themselves against the best in the west this Thursday through Saturday, with coveted bids to the NCAA Outdoor Championships at stake.
Nearing the end of their four years together, hurdlers Carly Lester, Darhian Mills, and Morganne Hill chase a perfect ending.
Three wins, seven podium finishes, and two top-five team finishes for the Huskies last week in Tucson.
Husky track and field will be sending its largest group ever to the NCAA West Preliminary Championships, as a total of 41 Huskies will compete from May 23-25 in Sacramento, Calif. for spots at the NCAA Outdoor Championships in June.
Redshirt freshman Elijah Mason became the first Husky to win the Pac-12 men's discus crown in over four decades, and both Husky squads finished in the top-five for only the third time in history as the Pac-12 Championships wrapped up today at the University of Arizona.
In a 25-lap race that began after midnight, Husky senior Izzi Batt-Doyle put the rest of the field to bed with a late push to claim the Pac-12 title at 10,000-meters and cap off a very long but very strong day for Washington at the Pac-12 Track & Field Championships.
