Faldermeyer & Woepse Post Wins at Cougar Indoor

Jan. 27, 2012

Results

Mike Woepse and Alec Faldermeyer posted big wins on Friday at the Cougar Indoor in Pullman, WA to highlight the men's track and field team.

Woepse, who cleared a lifetime-best of 17-8.50 in the pole vault last weekend at the Reno Pole Vault Summit, cleared 17-6.50 to win the event on Friday. That mark set a new Cougar Indoor meet record and is also one of the top 10 marks in the NCAA this season.

Faldermeyer posted his second consecutive 35-lb weight throw win as he captured the Cougar Indoor title with a mark of 67-1.25. The second-place finisher was eight feet behind the two-time All-American.

Also on Friday, the first day of the heptathlon got underway and the Bruins are poised for some big points as they currently stand in first, second, fourth and eighth in the competition. Marcus Nilsson leads the way in first with a total of 2917 points. Dominic Giovannoni is second (2884), David Thomas is third (2842) and Trent Perez is eighth (2611).

Nilsson was seventh in the 60m (7.41/742 pts.), tied for second in the high jump (6-3.25/723 pts.), second in the long jump (22-00.75/748 pts.) and won the shot put (44-8/704 pts.).

Giovannoni was fourth in the 60m (7.28/788 pts.), tied for second in the high (6-3.25/723 pts.), fifth in the long (21-8.25/686 pts.) and fourth in the shot put (41-10.75/653 pts.).

Thomas was 10th in the 60m (7.54/700 pts.), tied for second in the high jump (6-3.25/723 pts.), won the long jump (22-1.50/753 pts.) and was second in the shot (42-7/666 pts.).

Perez finished eighth in the 60m (7.42/739 pts.) and high jump (6-00.75/670 pts.), sixth in the long jump (21-2/686 pts.) and 10th in the shot put (34-5.50/516 pts.)

In the long jump, Taylor Hobson was second overall with a mark of 23-3.25.
