LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Two Western Washington University records fell as Frank Catelli (So., Sequim) won the men's shot put with a mark of 58-7 1/2 and Tanya Bjornsson (Sr., Ferndale) placed second in the women's long jump with a leap of 19-4 3/4 at the Azusa Pacific University Bryan Clay Track and Field Invitational on Friday at Cougar Stadium on the APU campus.

Catelli bettered his own record set four weeks ago by nearly 15 inches. Bjornsson's effort was two inches farther than the standard she established last year.

The Vikings' Alex Donigian (Jr., Mission Viejo, CA/Trabucco Hills) won the men's 100 meters with a time of 10.56 and helped the 4x100 relay place fifth in 42.70.

Bjornsson also finished seventh in the women's 100 hurdles with a 14.44 clocking and had a 12.68 time in the 100.

Logan Myers (Jr., Olympia/Capital) was a provisional national qualifier in the men's high jump, clearing 6-8 3/4 to place third. Katelyn Steen (Jr., Sammamish/Eastlake) finished fourth in the women's steeplechase, bettering her provisional qualifying time by over 10 seconds at 10:44.03.

At the Oregon Relays in Eugene, Ore., WWU's Chip Jackson (Sr., Shoreline/Shorewood) narrowly missed the provisional standard in the men's 5000, finishing fifth in 14:41.59.
