Here I am…back on location…back with functioning Internet.
Today’s events are just about to get started, so here’s a run-down of what’s coming up in the next hour or so.
Kyle Hook (Joseph, Ore.) has already regionally qualified and has thrown beyond 200 feet a few times this year. He should be a solid bet for a top-three finish today. Junior Jonathan Marler (Kennewick, Wash.) is a bit of a wild card here. He competed in this event for the first time a few weeks ago and threw in the 180s and then last weekend threw 193 at the Vandal Jamboree. If he throws more than 200 feet today, he’ll literally come out of nowhere to score in this event.
Women’s Triple Jump:
We’ll have two women here, both of them freshmen. Alyssa Covington (Boise, Idaho) couldn’t find the board and fouled out of the long jump yesterday, so I’m betting she’s going to come out with some fire today. Morgan Dunning (Spokane, Wash.) finished 13th in the pole vault yesterday and I think she’ll be a solid outside shot to score today.
For the track events…don’t hold your breath. We’re still a couple hours away from them.
I’m going to go check out the upcoming field events, then I’ll report back and get a little more going.
