A week after recording one of the fastest 10,000-meter times in NCAA Division II track and field, Dylan Anthony opted for a shorter race.
The University of Alaska Anchorage sophomore clocked a 4-minute, 05.68-second time in the 1,500 meters to place 19th at the Willamette Invitational Saturday in Oregon.
Anthony placed 12th in his heat, which was the fastest of the three. Brad Prettyman of Clackamas Community College (Ore.) won the heat in 3:52.69.
A week ago, Anthony produced a 29:53.28 10,000-meter time — the sixth-fastest in NCAA Division II this season.
Anthony’s next meet is April 18 at the Mt. SAC Relays.
Alesha Fish of Skagit Valley Community College (Wash.) went a combined 0-2 with one run and one walk in losses to Walla Walla Community College and North Idaho College last week.
For the season, Fish, a catcher, is 0-4 with one run, one walk and two strikeouts in three games.
