Collegiate Women's Track & Field:
Eastern Washington's Jordan Baughan captured first place in the javelin at the Sasquatch Mini-Meet, held March 10-11, in Spokane.
A junior from Klickitat, Baughan threw 156 feet, 11 inches to post an NCAA Division I regional qualifying mark and qualify for the May 10-13 Big Sky Conference championships in Cheney.
Baughan's career-best effort is 159-2, set in 2005. That was the all-time school record and Big Sky record (with the modern javelin, which came into use in 2000) until EWU teammate Stephanie Ulmer, a senior from Ellensburg, launched a throw of 165-8 April at a meet in Missoula, Mont.

Mark Kilpatrick and Chas Bell each recorded a hat trick April 11 in Stevenson's 10-0 Trico Division victory over Castle Rock.
Kilpatrick scored all three of his goals in the first half, helping the Bulldogs (4-1 in Trico, 6-1 overall) build a 6-0 halftime advantage.
Ben Chambers and Collin Strand both tallied two goals for Stevenson, and Caleb Scott got credit for two assists.
The seventh in a series of spring hikes sponsored by the Klickitat Trail Conservancy is set for this Sunday, April 23.
Former KTC president Jim Minick will lead the moderate hike from Fisher Hill Bridge to Pitt. The low-grade route will follow alongside the Klickitat River and cover eight miles of sometimes rocky terrain.
A spokesman for the hike said "this very scenic route will be at wildflower peak, with yellow balsam root, purple lupine and much more." Hikers should expect to finish around 3:30 p.m.
The meeting place for the hike is the Lyle Trailhead, near the junction of State Routes 14 and 142 in Lyle, at 10 a.m.
KTC's spring series will finish up with hikes on May 6 (Swale Canyon), June 3 (Swale Canyon) and June 11 (Fisher Hill to Pitt).
