TEMPE, Ariz. -- Whitney Evans and Ellannee Richardson, Washington State heptathletes, tallied NCAA Provisional Qualifying totals Friday during the multi-events portion of the Baldy Castillo Invitational Track Meet at Sun Devil Stadium. Cougar decathlete finished fifth in the men's decathlon.

Evans, a redshirt sophomore from Calgary, Canada, finished second with a total of 5,468 points and Richardson, a redshirt sophomore from Gladstone, Ore., was third in the nine-competitor field with 5,377 points. Kansas State's Skujyte Austra won the heptathlon with an NCAA Automatic Qualifying total of 5,596 points in the seven events.

During the three events Friday afternoon, Evans long jumped 5.68m/18-feet, 7 3/4 inches, threw the javelin 36.00m/118-1, and finished second in the 800m run in a time of 2 minutes, 19.62 seconds. Evans had lifetime bests marks in the high hurdles (14.44) and shot put (11.16m/36-7 1/2) during Thursday's first day events.

Richardson, who has been troubled by calf problems, reach 5.54m/18-2 1/4 in the long jump, threw the javelin 37.64m/123-6, and won the 800m run in a time of 2:19.41.

Dwyer, a junior from Redmond, Wash., had a set-back Friday after scoring a lifetime-best first day total of 3,500 points. Dwyer did not clear a height in the pole vault and finished fifth out of the eight competitors with 6,186 points. Oregon's Jason Slye won the decathlon with 6,677 points.

Dwyer clocked in a 15.05 time in the 110m high hurdles, threw the discus 36.84m/120-10, had a no height in the pole vault, took one throw in the javelin for a distance of 48.70m/159-9, and finished the competition by winning the 1500m run in a time of 4:41.22.

"I was really disappointed for Steve today," Cougar Head Coach Rick Sloan said. "Had he made just 14-9 or 15-1 in the pole vault he would have had over 7,000 points and would have won.

"Whitney and Ellannee will not compete in another heptathlon until the Pac-10 Championships, but I'm pretty sure these marks will get them into the NCAA Championships this year."

The Castillo Invitational individual events continued late into Friday night with the Distance Carnival and resume Saturday at 9 a.m. MST.
