WWU's Warman ties 30-year-old school record in long jump
May 4, 2012
BELLINGHAM, Wash. - Western Washington University's Emily Warman (Sr., Sedro-Woolley) tied a school record that had stood for 30 years as she leaped 19-2 in the women's long jump Friday at the 12th Annual WWU Twilite Invitational Track and Field meet at Civic Stadium.
Warman's effort matched the WWU standard set by Donna Larry in 1982 and improved her NCAA Division II national provisional qualifying mark.
Despite the record, Warman placed second to Universal Athletics Sabrina Nettey, who won with a leap of 19-5 1/4. Warman, who earlier this season went 40-5 to break the school triple jump record, won that event with a mark of 39-4.
Two Vikings who bettered their PNQs with winning efforts were Michael Hoffman (Sr., Bellingham/Sehome) in the men's hammer (205-1) and the discus (168-1) and Lindsay Wells (So., Seattle/Nathan Hale) in the women's hammer (163-11).
Hoffman's hammer effort bettered his previous best this season by eight feet.
WWU's Eleanor Siler (Sr., Spokane/Lewis & Clark) was also a double-event winner, taking both the women's 200 meters (25.49) and 400 (56.71).
Shane Gruger (Sr., Shoreline/Shorewood) won the men's 100 (10.92) and ran the second leg on WWU's victorious 4x100 relay (41.40).
Also winning men's events for the Vikings were Eric Brill (Sr., Kent/Kentwood) in the 3,000-meters (8:42.81), Braden Timpe (So., Enumclaw) in the mile (4:13.98), Karsten Shick (So., Kodiak, AK) in the 110 hurdles (15.58), Brett Watson (Fr., Ferndale) in the long jump (21-10), and Thomas Guidon (Jr., Bothell) in the pole vault (14-5 1/4).
