David Paul took first in the discus (177-0) for the Eastern Washington University men's track and field team Saturday (April 21) at the Oregon Invitational. Paul has already qualified for the NCAA West Regional Championships in all four of his events.
Both Brody Faire and Chad Butorac took first their section of events Saturday afternoon. Faire had throw of 50-4 in the shot put and Butorac had a time of 22.24 in the 200, respectively. Both men have already qualified for the Big Sky Conference Outdoor Championships.
On the women's side, Camille Moseley set a personal record in the 1500. Her time of 4:36.87 placed her second out of 22 runners and now ranks her fourth all-time in Eastern history. On day one in Eugene, Moseley set a personal record in the 5,000 (17:04.17). She has already qualified for the Big Sky Conference Outdoor Championships in both events.
Freshman Krystal Deyo was the lone BSC qualifier this weekend as she took first in her section of the 100 with a time of 12.39.
The 4x100 relay team of Deyo, Jessica Duran, Kristen Felderman and Sarah Frey took second with a time of 48.59. Relay teams do not qualify for the BSC Championships automatically. The top eight times from the outdoor season in each relay event will be invited to compete for the Conference title.
A few athletes also competed at the Cougar Invitational in Pullman, Wash., (April 20-21). Leading the pack at that meet was Erika Kirley-Price who finished second in the hammer throw (153-6) and seventh in the discus (131-3).
The squad will split again next weekend (April 28) as some will compete at the Duane Hartman Invitational in Spokane, Wash., and the rest will be at the Sacramento State Invitational in Sacramento, Calif. Those two meets will be the last chances for an EWU athlete to qualify for the Big Sky Conference Outdoor Championships to be held May 11-12 in Pocatello, Idaho.
