Junior Boldizsar Kocsor blew away the competition to win his first MPSF Indoor weight throw crown on day one of the conference meet in Seattle, WA. Kocsor out-distanced his nearest competitor by over seven feet, tossing an NCAA qualifier of 69-9.50.

Washington leads the meet after five events scored with 31 points. Arizona State is close behind with 29 points, followed by Washington St. (25), Oregon (23), Cal State Northridge (17) and UCLA (16).

The distance medley relay team also put on a strong performance as they improved their NCAA qualifying time by nearly five seconds to place third overall. The team of Marlon Patterson, Elijah Wells, Cory Primm and Laef Barnes were just one second shy of the NCAA auto time with their run of 9:35.02. That time ranks amongst the top-10 in the nation this season.
