SEATTLE - Western Washington University broke two school records and had four NCAA Division II national provisional qualifiers as the Vikings opened their indoor track and field season Saturday, Jan. 12, competing in the Husky Preview at the University of Washington campus.
WWU's Alex Donigian ran a school record 6.89 seconds in winning the men's 60 meters.
The other three provisional qualifiers for the Vikings were Karis Anderson, who placed second in the women's pole vault (11-5 1/4); Emily Warman, who was third in the women's long jump (18-13/4); and Tanya Bjornsson, who was 10th in the 60 hurdle finals (9.02) after posting an 8.94 clocking in the prelims.
The Vikings' other school record came in the men's 4x400 relay, which placed second to Stanford (3:20.00) with a time of 3:20.26. Making up that foursome were Jon Poolman, Anthony Do, Jason Nokes and Devon Smith, a transfer from Western Oregon.
