Bearcats Tune up for Nationals and Add More NCAA Qualifiers

Seattle, Wash. - Saturday's meet at Husky Stadium was another great opportunity for the Bearcat squads to tune up for nationals and add more NCAA qualifiers to their already impressive list. The best performances of the day were definitely in the 1500 races where five Bearcats were fast enough to gain NCAA provisional marks. Willamette also added six new All Time Top 10 marks to the records.

The Bearcats are back in Seattle next weekend for the Ken Foreman Invitational on May 14-15, hosted by Seattle Pacific. The Hammer and Heptathlon/Decathlon are Friday at Pacific Lutheran and the entire meet moves to West Seattle Sports Complex for Saturday's action.
