NWAC HEADLINES

Spokane's Blakely and Clackamas's Bone lead the 2017 NWAC Mulit-Event Championships after Day 1

Day 1 Results: Decathlon | Heptathlon

EUGENE, OR -  Day one has concluded of the 2017 NWAC Multi Events with Spokane sophomore Tyler Blakely leading the Decathlon and Clackamas sophomore Chelsea Bone leading the way in the Heptathlon.

Blakely leads the men's field over 2016 Decathlon Champion Grant Shurtliff of Lane by 36 points 3585 to 3549.

Lane sophomore Wyatt Thompson-Siporen is in third with 3437 points, 364 points over 4th place freshman Randy Jones of Spokane.

Blakely will look to hold off Thompson-Siporen and Shurtliff in Tuesday's events. Thompson-Siporen turned in a season best 6764 points while teammate Shurtliff tallied a high of 6750 points, both at the Westmont Classic Combined Events on April 25th. Blakely's season high was 5474.

Blakely turned another great performance in the high jump with a leap of 6-11, breaking his own NWAC Decathlon HJ record of 6-10 set last season.

Spokane head coach Jason Cash had this to say about Blakely's record setting jump, "Tyler had clean jumps on his first three heights. The option was to stay on the height procession and get what we knew would be good points or to demonstrate how much confidence we had in his ability to pass two heights and go after the record. He never hesitated one bit and put together a fantastic jump!"

On the women's side, Clackamas' Chelsea Bone leads 2016 Heptathlon runner-up, Spokane sophomore Katie Collins, by 72 points, 2604 to 2532.

Bone, who finished fifth in last year's Heptathlon, turned in an NWAC season best 4329 points at the Pacific Combined Event on April 27. Collins' top mark this season (2nd in the NWAC) was 4011 at the Sam Adams Classic on April 23.

In third place is Spokane sophomore Isabel Clark with 2402 points followed by Lane freshman Oliva Lane with 2374.

Clark's top score this season was 3855 points while Lane turned in a top mark of 3789.

Action resumes Tuesday morning at Lane Community College with the Decathlon beginning at 9:00am and the Heptathlon at 10:00am.
