Freshmen Dodig, Zmuda guide WSU at track invite

Two freshmen led Washington State’s track and field team Saturday at the Cougar Indoor meet in Pullman.

Dino Dodig won the men’s heptathlon after totaling 5,483 points, a freshman school record. Another freshman, Daniel Zmuda, won the men’s 60-meter hurdles in 8.24 seconds, but his preliminary time of 8.01 tied the WSU freshman record set by Jeshua Anderson in 2008.

WSU’s men and women won 20 events.

WSU won all four of the women’s jumps. Junior Charlotte Muschamp won the high jump with a leap of 5 feet, 8 3/4 inches. Senior Kelsey Bueno won the pole vault (12-5 1/2), sophomore Zoe Moller took the long jump (18-0 1/4) and senior Shantae Young claimed the triple jump (37-7 3/4).

Idaho came away with seven individual titles. Vandals senior Andrew Bloom won the men’s 400 run in 48.61 and freshman Arphaxad Carroll won the men’s long jump with a career-best leap of 23-9 1/2.

Three Whitworth school records also fell. The Pirates’ Danielle Openiano finished second in the women’s shot put (38-4 1/4), Casey Monahan was second in the men’s 60 hurdles (8.29) and Peter Dunlap was third in the men’s heptathlon (4,757 points).

• Brent Felnagle and Jordan McCann set school records on the track to highlight Gonzaga’s performance at the University of Washington Invitational.

Felnagle won the men’s mile in 4:08.44, breaking Robert Walgren’s record of 4:11.91, set in 2012.

McCann claimed the title in the women’s 800. She finished in 2:16.66, breaking her school record of 2:17.90, which she set last year.


North Idaho fell to Northeast Oklahoma and edged host Northwest College in a pair of duals at Powell, Wyo.

Cardinals Jeremy Golding (149 pounds) and V.J. Giulio (197) won both of their matches.


Whitworth (5-1) swept No. 19 Redlands (2-4) in a nonconference doubleheader in Redlands, Calif.

The Pirates won the opener 13-10 and claimed the nightcap 8-6. Peyton McMahon had five RBIs between the two games, including a three-run home run in the second game.
