University of Idaho athletes won four events at Saturday’s Baldy Castillo Invitational track and field meet at Tempe, Ariz.
Hugo Munoz cleared 7 feet, 1 inch to win the high jump, one of three men’s events the Vandals claimed. Felix Kamangirira won the 400-meter run in 46.46 seconds, edging Colorado’s James Davis by .01, and Oscar Duncan, hobbled by a foot injury last year, won the javelin at 216-8.
Idaho’s Melanie Kreizenbeck won the women’s pole vault at 10-2.
Also for the Vandals, Chris Kwaramba was second in the men’s triple jump at 52-8 and Bernd Schroeder ran 3:48.51 to place third in the men’s 1,500.
Jeremy Isherwood, Jason Bay and Nathan Holmes homered as North Idaho College (10-8, 1-2) defeated host Treasure Valley CC 15-3 for a split of their Region 18 doubleheader at Ontario, Ore.
Bay hit a two-run homer in the third, his eighth, and Isherwood a three-run shot in the fourth, his fifth. Holmes, after a two-run single in the fourth and RBI single in the fifth, led off the seventh with his third homer.
Holmes also had RBI singles in the fourth and seventh innings of the opener, but the Chukars (17-15, 2-1) held on for a 9-7 win.
Todd Hughes’ no-out, bases-loaded single in the bottom of the 10th inning allowed Santa Clara (17-15, 7-8) to defeat Gonzaga 6-5 for a split of their West Coast Conference doubleheader.
GU (3-22, 1-11) won the opener 9-7 on the strength of a seven-run second inning in which George Arnott, Luke Gradishar and Kevin Workman had RBI hits.
Kevin Taylor went 3 for 5 as the Zags won for the first time since Feb. 27, a 4-3 win over Washington.
GU was in position to win the nightcap after Adam Stokey hit his second homer, a two-run shot in the top of the eighth, for a 5-all tie. But the first three Broncos reached base off Brian Newton (0-2) in the 10th, setting up Hughes’ game-winner up the middle.
Kyle Bowers hit a two-out, three-run homer in the seventh as visiting Pacific Lutheran defeated Whitworth 5-4 in the first game of a doubleheader sweep in the Northwest Conference of Independent Colleges.
Paul Baurichter homered and doubled as the Lutes (13-9, 2-3) won the second game 9-5.

Jason Grove hit for the cycle as Washington State defeated the Cougars alumni 18-11 in an exhibition.
Grove singled in the fourth, doubled in the fifth, tripled in the seventh and homered in the eighth. He also started on the mound, allowing one earned run in four innings.
