WEST SEATTLE, Wash. – Battling the wind and rain as much as their competition, the Evergreen Geoducks put forth a solid effort at the Club Northwest Spring Break Open on Saturday at West Seattle Stadium in West Seattle, Wash.
Junior Wes Jones (Tacoma, Wash./Mt. Tahoma HS) took care of the field in the 800m run, winning the race by over a second over second-place Alex Horton of Seattle Pacific. Jones finished the two lap race in 1:58.52.
Senior Zephyr Forest (Fairfax, Calif./Sir Francis Drake HS) improved his Cascade Conference Championship qualifying time in the 400m Hurdles, taking fifth in a time of 1:00.89. Forest also teamed up with Wes Jones, Les Jones (Tacoma, Wash./Mt. Tahoma HS) and Steven Pressley (Tacoma, Wash./Mt. Tahoma HS) in the 4x400m relay for the first time this season, running a 3:36.72 as the only team competing.
Sophomore Anthony Johnson (Seattle, Wash./Garfield HS/Pima CC) won the high jump for the third time this season, clearing 2.05m (6-8.75) to finish four inches better than Western Washington’s Logan Myers.
The Geoducks will take next week off from competition before returning to Seattle on April 12 for the Washington Open at Husky Track on the campus of University of Washington.
