Area roundup: Sprinter Emmanuel Wells top Coug performer on final day of Pac-12 Championships

UPDATED: Sun., May 12, 2019

WSU’s Emmanuel Wells had the best showing for the Washington State Cougars men on Sunday’s final day of the Pac-12 Conference Track and Field Championships in Tucson, Arizona.

Wells placed third in the 100 with a time of 10.26 seconds and fourth in the 200 (20.88).

Others who scored for the WSU men were: Junior Nick Johnson (5th in 110 hurdles, 13.89); senior Peyton Fredrickson (5th in high jump, 7 feet, 1/4 inches); freshman Jacob Englar (5th in pole vault, 16-9 1/2); senior Robby Flores (6th in triple jump, 46-10 3/4); sophomore Jake Ulrich (7th in 400, 47.03); junior Paul Ryan (8th in 1,500, 3:51.4).

The WSU women did most of their scoring in the pole vault where senior Katelyn Frost (13-4 1/2), junior Molly Scharmann (13-2 1/2) and sophomore Emily Coombs (12-10 3/4) placed second, fourth and fifth. The trio accounted for 17 of WSU’s 24.5 points.

Oregon’s men and USC’s women defended their titles in the team race. The WSU men finished seventh and the women placed 10th.


Matt McLain hit a three-run home run and a solo shot and the top-ranked UCLA Bruins (41-8, 19-5) held on for a 13-10 victory over the WSU Cougars (10-36-1, 2-21-1) in Pullman to complete a three-game sweep in Pac-12 Conference play.

Brody Barnum had a two-run double in the middle of a six-run bottom of the fourth inning to give the Cougars an 8-6 lead. But UCLA scored five runs in the top of the seventh – capped by Garrett Mitchell’s two-run single, his fourth hit of the game – to pull away.

Tyson Guerrero was tagged with the loss after surrendering four runs on three hits and three walks in 2/3 of an inning.
