Maribel Caicedo (8.29) won the 60m hurdles with the fourth-fastest time in program history and fourth in the NCAA this season while teammate Micaela De Mello (8.32) finished just behind in second while clocking the fifth-fastest 60m hurdles in program history and sixth-fastest time in the NCAA this season.
“Today was an awesome way to cap-off a great fall season of training. I was very impressed with the way our team prepared and competed today,” said Director of Track & Field Wayne Phipps.
Caicedo and De Mello both notched a program top-ten in the 60-meter dash while claiming first and second place in the finals heat. The duo jumped into the top in the country for the event with their one-two finish.
“I’m very excited to see some impactful NCAA marks and all-time WSU marks. A great start to our indoor season and a great set-up for the rest of our indoor season,” said Phipps.
John Parades and Lawyer were neck-and-neck in the 60m-dash until Parades pulled ahead to take second while Lawyer claimed third. Eight Cougars notched a personal best on the day in the 60 meters with several young Cougs making their collegiate debuts on Saturday.
