Deyo sparkles in Pelluer

Krystal Deyo made the Pelluer Invitational track and field meet her own Friday evening.

The Eastern Washington junior broke the school record in the long jump and then ran the fastest 100-meter time in the 38 years of Pelluer history at Woodward Field. Her long jump taped out at 19 feet, 81/4 inches – an even 6 meters – while her electronically timed 11.99-second 100 was superior to the hand-timed 11.8 run by EWU’s Cathy Davis in 1981.

Three University of Idaho redshirts accounted for other meet records in women’s events. Mykael Bothum added more than 3 feet to the shot put standard with a 52-51/2 heave, while Gabby Midles stretched the hammer record to 185-11 – knocking off former record holder Nicole Luckenbach of Eastern. In the 100-meter hurdles, Christie Gordon equaled the meet record of 13.92.

Top performances on the men’s side included a stadium- record pole vault of 16-63/4 by Idaho freshman Jeremy Klas. Former EWU standout David Paul returned to win the hammer with a throw of 224-3 – just 5 inches short of the meet record. Whitworth’s Emmanel Bofa ran the first sub-1:50 800 meters at the Pelluer in more than 30 years, a 1:49.93.


Pacific-10: Second-place Washington State (22-18 overall, 11-5 in conference) defeated Stanford (20-19, 8-11) 3-1 in the opener of a three-game series at Bailey-Brayton Field in Pullman.

The Cougars got eight strong innings from senior Matt Way (6-4), who gave up a run on five hits, striking out five and walking two. WSU scored in the second inning on a double by Greg Lagreid and Michael Weber’s sacrifice fly to tie the game. Derek Jones and Weber homered in the fourth for the final runs. The Cougars’ 11 wins are most since the conference reunified in 1999.

Also in the Pac-10: A two-run single by Pierce Rankin with two outs in the eighth inning lifted Washington past visiting Southern California 9-8.

Ryan Weigand was 3 for 4 and drove in two runs and became GU’s all-time hits leader with 270, passing Eric Rodland. He had a RBI single in the Bulldogs’ two-run first inning and another to cap scoring in the seventh.


NWAACC: CC Spokane continued to close in on the East Division title with a 6-0, 8-0 doubleheader victory over visiting Treasure Valley at Spokane Falls CC.

The Sasquatch remain in first place at 19-5 (33-8 overall) with four games to go.

Sean Topp and Shelby Bethel both threw one-hitters, Bethel’s coming over six innings because of the eight-run rule.

In the opener, Topp walked one and struck out seven, giving up the lone hit in the sixth inning. Michelle Wells had a single and a double and added a triple and homer in the second game. Wells has a team-high nine home runs. Christy Selway added two hits in the first game as the Sasquatch came up with 10 hits each in both games.

In the second game, Bethel walked two, struck out three and gave up her lone hit in the fifth. Heather Jackson went 3 for 3 with three RBIs in that game.

Treasure Valley fell to 8-16 in conference, 13-26 overall.

•Scenic West Athletic Conference: North Idaho College divided a home doubleheader against No. 5 ranked Salt Lake CC, losing 7-4 in nine innings and winning 6-5 in 10. Hayley Atiyeh’s two-run double, followed by Ami Broadbent’s base hit did in the Cardinals in the first game. NIC’s Amanda Krier drove in three runs with two hits, singling in both runs to tie the game in the seventh and send it to extra innings.

Alyssa Hawley singled in the winning run in the second game. She had two hits and scored twice while leadoff hitter Lauren Maloney drove in four runs with two hits in the contest.

•Pac-10: No. 4 ranked University of Washington (37-9, 10-5) earned its 11th come-from-behind victory, scoring five unanswered runs for a 5-2 victory over Oregon State (24-26, 3-13) at Husky Stadium.

Pitcher Danielle Lawrie improved to 28-5. Kimi Pohlman homered and Lauren Greer’s sacrifice fly plated what proved to be the winner.


Two players have signed letters of intent to play women’s basketball at Eastern Washington University.
