Last Time Out – Buc Scoring Invite

WSU combined for seven wins over two days at the Buc Scoring Invite at Whitowrth Pine Bowl.  Neema Kimtai set a Boppell Track facility record to win the women’s 800m Friday in 2:08.43, and the Cougars combined for an additional six event wins in field and combined events last week.

Ben Chappell won the Buc Scoring Invite hammer throw with a season-best 62.17m mark, while teammate Caden Hottman placed second with a final mark of 59.76m. Gilana Wollman reached a mark of 5.56m (18′ 3.0″) to tally her first-career outdoor win in the women’s long jump, and Sarah Kovich followed up PR’s in the 100m hurdles (15.24), high jump (1.70m), and shot put (10.15m) on day one, with another two lifetime-bests on the second day to capture her first-career heptathlon win.

Brayden Freitag’s first-place finish in the men’s pole vault at 4.90m and Nana Gyedu’s season-best 15.55m mark to win the women’s shot put rounded out the two-day meet to bring the Cougars win total on the week to seven.
