SEATTLE – Senior Luke Houser and freshman Hana Moll were each added to the 10-person Bowerman Men’s and Women’s Watch Lists this week, their first inclusions on the prestigious list of candidates for college track and field’s highest award.
Houser, the defending NCAA Champion in the mile, currently has the fastest mile time in the NCAA without an altitude conversion, and he also ranks No. 6 in the 3,000-meters, having run both times at home in the Dempsey, and broken Dempsey facility records in each race. Houser’s mile time of 3:51.73 is the fourth-fastest all-conditions effort in collegiate history.
Houser is the sixth Washington man to be named to the Bowerman Watch List since the award was created in 2009. He joins a list that includes Scott Roth (2011), Jeremy Taiwo (2013), Izaic Yorks (2016), Sam Tanner (2021), and Joe Waskom (2023).
Moll, the current NCAA leader in the women’s pole vault, is one of three freshmen now on the women’s midseason Watch List, the most freshmen ever considered on one edition of the list. Her season-best clearance at the UW Invitational of 15-2 ¾ ranks her No. 5 in NCAA history indoors.
The Olympia, Wash. native is the fourth Husky women on the Watch List, and the first since Olivia Gruver in 2020. Katie Flood (2012-13) and Katie Follett (2010) were also watch listed in their days.
The Bowerman will be awarded in December at the annual USTFCCCA Convention in Orlando, Florida.
