Eastern Sees Four Athletes Reach Personal Bests in Spokane

Kramer Green, a walk-on athlete, improves 400 hurdles time by nearly 1 second

The Eastern Washington University men’s and women’s track and field team stayed close to home Saturday (April 28) as they traveled to the Community Colleges of Spokane for the Duane Hartman Invitational.

According to men’s head coach Stan Kerr, Kramer Green had the best performance of the day, as he broke his personal record in the 400-meter hurdles by almost a second, running a 53.83. His previous best was 54.4.

“Kramer looked really good today,” said Kerr. “Improvements have been very substantial, and today was kind of his test to see how he could do. It’s safe to say he responded well.”

Robin Taylor and Amber Troyer both had good days. Taylor hit 12-8 and Troyer reached a personal record of 11-8.

In the hammer throw, both Zach Nielsen and Jasmine Stray both hit good marks today, with both of them reaching personal bests in the event. Nielsen hit 184-11, while Stray reached 159-4.

“The meet went well,” said women’s head coach Marcia Mecklenburg. “The athletes are continuing to improve before conferences.”

“It was definitely a great tune up for the Big Sky Championships,” added Kerr.

The Big Sky Conference Outdoor Championships will be May 11-12 in Bozeman, Mont.
