LACEY, Wash. – Sophomore Zephyr Forest (Fairfax, Calif./Drake HS) broke the minute mark in the 400m Hurdles to lead the Evergreen Geoduck effort on Saturday at the Saint Martin’s Invitational in Lacey, Wash.
Forest complete the hurdled lap in 58.32, over two seconds faster than he has run this year, to take 10th in a primarily NCAA field. In addition to setting a collegiate best for the sophomore, it also propels him into the top-10 in the Cascade Conference this season at ninth. He also competed in the 110m hurdles, taking 14th with a time of 17.24.
Freshman Les Jones (Tacoma, Wash./Mt. Tahoma) also ran twice for the Geoducks. Jones took 14th in the 800m run with a time of 2:06.55 and 20th in the 1500m run with a time of 4:38.54. Fellow freshman Alec Messman (Lacey, Wash./River Ridge) also ran the 1500m run, taking 24th with a time of 4:45.08.
Drew Hawley (SeaTac, Wash./Mt. Rainier HS) took 13th in the 5000m run, posting a mark of 19:15.24 to improve his season-best by over 30 seconds.
