COUGS COME HOME TO TAKE ON OREGON, IDAHO: Washington State's men's and women's track and field teams compete Saturday at Mooberry Track against the perennially powerful Oregon Ducks and neighboring Idaho Vandals...field events begin at 11:00 a.m. with running events set for 1:30 p.m...dual team scoring will be used with a 5-3-1 format for individual events, 5-0 for relays.

EVENTS TO WATCH: On the Men's Side: Bernard Lagat, 1999 NCAA Div. I Indoor Male Track Athlete of the Year, will race in the 800m and 1500m events...the 1500m race looks to be highly competitive with Oregon's Rob Aubrey and Laird Prosser, both NCAA PQs last spring...the 800m race should find Oregon's Richard Girvan and Idaho's Curtis Kunkel battling with Lagat...the 3k finds Oregon's steeplechaser Konrad Knutsen racing WSU's Oscar Franco-Parra...the sprints should clock in good times, weather permitting, with WSU's Anson Henry and Guillermo Macias, Idaho's Martijn Ungerer, Tawanda Chiwira and Adekunle Adejuyibge, and Oregon's Jermaine Hanspard and Howard Moore...notable by their absence from this meet are Oregon distance runners Micah and Matthew Davis from Spokane...former Pac-10 champion's Kyley Johnson in the high jump and Piotr Buciarski in the pole vault will compete for the Ducks...Cougar Demetrius Murray has the top credentials heading into the triple jump...Idaho's Joachim Olsen will throw discus and shot put with his NCAA Indoor third-place finish in the shot still fresh in his mind. One the Women's Side: Oregon's five-time All-American, Marie Davis, is slated to compete in both the 1500m and the 3000m...the pole vault features four women with NCAA PQs already this season - Cougar Jeannette Martus will compete at Mooberry Track for the first time in her career facing Oregon's Karina Elstrom, Niki Reed, and Holly Speight...WSU workhorse Francesca Sewell is slated to compete in the 100m, high and long jumps...the throws look promising with Cougs Becky Potter, Mandy Borschowa, and Molly Monroe taking on UO's Heidi Fisk, and Michele Dick.
