WSU freshman Jacob Sealby took 14th place in the 400m dash with a PR time of 49.15. Anderson PRd in the 60m hurdles with a fourth-place time of 7.98, and Ramsey Hopkins finished sixth in a time of 8.20 after running a PR time of 8.08 in the prelims.

VanDeBrake and Bobbe also ran PR times Friday night in the 5k with Bobbe's time of 17:11.72 a WSU freshman school record.

"We had a lot of lifetime-best marks in this meet," Sloan said. "The distance runners did a great job here but there are still a handful of people we need to perform at a higher level if we are going to be a championship-type team. I hope in the next two weeks they find that edge we're looking for and get us some points in the championship."
The WSU track and field teams will return to Pullman for competition next weekend at the WSU Open II Indoor meet at the Indoor Facility.
