WSU track and field competed in the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Indoor Championships Friday and Saturday at the Dempsey Indoor in Seattle.

The Cougars battled some of the best teams in the nation in the event including USC and Oregon.

The WSU men’s team finished in a tie for eighth place with Colorado with a score of 38 while the women’s team took home 14th with a score of 17.

BYU claimed first on the men’s side with a 98 and USC grabbed first on the women’s with 120.

The Cougars failed to secure any event victories but were able to bring home seven top-five finishes in individual events.

Junior Emmanuel Wells Jr. led the way securing a third-place finish in the men’s 60-meter with a time of 6.65 seconds and fifth in the 200-meter.

In the men’s mile, redshirt junior Paul Ryan placed third with a personal record time of 3:58.79, the fourth best in WSU history and 16th fastest in the nation currently.

Junior Sam Brixey took third in the men’s 60-meter hurdles with a time of 7.96 and redshirt junior Molly Scharmann soared to fourth in the women’s pole vault.

Sophomore Jake Ulrich earned fifth in the men’s 400-meters with a time of 47.04 and senior Peyton Fredrickson brought home fifth in the men’s high jump to wrap the Cougars top-five finishers.

Junior Jordyn Tucker ran a 7.44 in the women’s 60-meter preliminaries, third best in WSU history and a new school indoor record. She placed seventh in the event.

Redshirt junior Aoife Martin grabbed eighth in the women’s weight throw with a toss of 17.89 meters, the sixth best mark in Cougar history.

Other notable results from the weekend included the women’s and men’s distance medley teams both placing sixth, freshman Charisma Taylor securing sixth in the women’s triple jump, redshirt junior Amani Brown claiming sixth in the men’s weight throw and senior Lindsey Schauble finishing seventh in the women’s pentathlon.

The Cougars now wait to see which athletes qualified for the NCAA Indoor Championships March 8-9 in Birmingham, Alabama.
