Two WWU records fall at Azusa Pacific Invitational


Two Western Washington University records fell as Frank Catelli won the men's shot put with a mark of 58-7 1/2 and Tanya Bjornsson placed second in the women's long jump with a leap of 19-4 3/4 at the Azusa Pacific Invitational on Friday in Los Angeles.

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 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 was a provisional national qualifier in the men's high jump, clearing 6-8 3/4 to place third.
