Mason Wins High Jump in Seattle

In just his second meet of the season, Olympian Mike Mason won the high jump event Saturday at the Dempsey Indoor facility. Mason cleared a height of 2.22 meters to easily secure the victory against competition from as far afield as California. Mason attempted 2.26 meters and had some good attempts at that height.

Also in Seattle Travis Vugteveen won his section of the 800 meters with a solid time of 1:54.56 while Jessica Smith, in her first race since recovering from a broken foot that kept her idle for a number of months, placed 11th in the mile (4:49.81) while Helen Crofts was fifth in the 800 meters (2:06.71).
