Big Sky Conference Championships are This Week as the Final Stretch of the Outdoor Season is Underway

Eastern looks for a team effort in hopes for success at the league championships May 11-14

After months of training, athletes from the Eastern Washington University track and field team will finally get to show off what they have been working toward for so long. The 2011 Big Sky Conference Outdoor Track and Field Championships will take place this weekend (May 11-14) in Sacramento, Calif.

Both the men's and women's team placed fourth last outdoor season – a best-ever finish for the women. While the Eagles have a number of athletes who could claim titles in their respective events, head coach Marcia Mecklenberg says that it will take a team effort to achieve another high placing.  

"This is an exciting time for our program" said Mecklenberg. "This is the most important meet of the year. This is a full-fledged team meet. Our athletes who are ranked high will do well, but we need the athletes who are ranked lower to do well so we can succeed as a team."

A total of 53 qualifying standards were met by Eastern athletes earlier in the season, 23 by the men and 30 by the women. All other competitors, who did not meet these standards, were either on the descending top-14 performance list or received wild card entries from their coaches.

Six Eastern athletes who have previously won Big Sky titles will compete in the championships this week, including four men and two women. The women's 4x100 meter relay team will also go for its third-consecutive title. Junior Brad Wall won the 400 meters in 2010 with a school-record time of 46.78. Senior Aaron Mettler was the champion in the javelin in 2008 and 2009. Senior Stephen Praast won the outdoor high jump in 2009, while junior Adam Stewart claimed the indoor title that same year. Junior Brianna Okoro will try to defend her 200 meter title. Erica Chaney won the weight throw this past indoor season.

Wednesday-Thursday Highlights . . .

The four-day competition will get underway Wednesday (May 11) with the men's decathlon, featuring Eastern's Kersee Lind, who is ranked third in the league standings. The junior from Hermiston, Ore., placed fourth at the outdoor conference championships in 2010 with 6,611 points. Lind is the school record-holder in the indoor heptathlon with 5,033 points.

The 100 meters will kick off the men's 10-event competition at noon, and the 100-meter hurdles will be the first of seven events for the women's heptathlon competition at 1 p.m. Thursday's lineup will feature the second day of the multi-events competitions, including the men's 1500 meters at 4:45 p.m. Last year, Lind racked up 730 points in the 1500, winning the race by more than four seconds.

Friday's Highlights

Friday's competition will get underway at 1 p.m., with the men's hammer throw, featuring EWU's young and up and coming throwers, Jordan Arakawa and Jon Buchanan. Arakawa, a freshman from Olympia, Wash., is ranked third in the league and fifth on EWU's all-time best list. He ranks 30th in the NCAA Division I West Region.
