WSU's Watkins Wins Hurdles at the US West Invitational Meet

February 12, 1999

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- Washington State University sophomore Arend Watkins was the sole Cougar winner at the US West Invitational Indoor Meet Friday night at Cadet Field House at the Air Force Academy. Over 30 NCAA Div. I track teams were represented at this prestigious meet.

Watkins, an All-American from San Jose, Calif., won the men's 60m high hurdles in a time of 7.73 seconds which equaled his already established NCAA provisional qualifying time (with altitude adjustment of .07 seconds added).

Becky Potter, a junior from Gig Harbor, set a school record with her second-place throw in the women's 20# weight. Her distance of 17.72m/58-1 3/4 surpassed her 1998 WSU best mark of 17.54m/57-6 1/2. Potter also finished fifth in the shot put.

WSU's Whitney Evans (freshman, Calgary, Canada) finished second in the women's high jump with an NCAA PQ leap of 1.78m/5-10, just three-quarters of an inch below her season best time jumped last week. Francesca Green Sewell (Kennewick) placed second in the women's long jump at 5.92m/19-5 1/4, sixth in the high jump, and seventh in the 60m dash. Cicely Clinkenbeard (sophomore, Okanogan) finished second in the women's triple jump with a leap of 12.39m/40-7 3/4.

The only other top placer on the men's side was Kevin Moore (senior, Richland) placed third in the men's 35# weight throw with a mark of 18.32m/60-1 1/4.

At the Vandal Indoor Invitational at Moscow, Idaho, WSU's Alishia Booterbaugh was second in the women's 800m race with a personal-best time of 2:08.18. Cross country All-American Megan Maynard (sophomore, Langley) also ran a lifetime best of 9:58.03 for third in the 3,000m race.

The Cougar indoor track teams head to Reno, Nev., for the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Championships Feb. 19-20.
