Myers leads group of 10 Vikings all-stars


Western Washington University's Logan Myers, who qualified in two events, led 10 Vikings honored as 2013 NCAA Division II West Region all-stars by the U.S. Track and Field Coaches Association.

The top five from each region in individual events and each member of a relay team ranked in the region's top three earned an all-star distinction.

Myers received all-region honors in the men's 110 hurdles and high jump. He set a school- and league-meet record of 14.65 seconds in the hurdles at the Great Northwest Athletic Conference Championships while clearing 6 feet, 7 1/2 inches in the long jump.

Lindsay Wells was a regional all-star for the third straight year as she bettered her school record in the women's hammer with an effort of 170-8. The toss earned her the distintion of GNAC champion.

Three more repeaters for the Vikings were Cheyenna Pinley in the women's pole vault (12-1 1/2), Katelyn Steen in the women's 3,000 steeplechase and Brett Watson in the men's high jump with a GNAC record 6-9 3/4. Pinley and Watson were both conference champions.

Completing WWU's list of regional all-stars were Bethany Drake, an automatic national qualifier in the women's javelin (157-4), Frank Catelli in the men's shot put (54-8 3/4), Alex Donigian in the men's 100 with a school-record time of 10.57, Ryan Macdonald in the men's discus (163-1) and Jon Poolman in the men's 400 (47.82).
