Wilt, Parker collect GNAC weekly honors
Wilt, from Unalaska, started off her last season with a career-best time of 10 minutes, 42.9 seconds in the women’s steeplechase, breaking her own UAA record of 10:48.90 set on April 15, 2010. The time, which qualifies her provisionally for the NCAAs, also ranks third on the all-time GNAC top-10 chart
A native of Comox, B.C., Parker commenced his collegiate career by breaking the Seawolf record in the men’s javelin with a NCAA provisional qualifying toss of 211 feet, one inch. Expected to be a national contender, Parker easily broke the previous record of 175-7, set by Casey Robinson on April 2, 2010.
Currently, both Wilt and Parker lead the country in their respective events. Wilt leads Chico State’s Amy Schnittger (10:50.87), while Parker tops UC San Diego’s Nick Howe (201-8).
The Seawolves return to action this weekend with the Northridge Spring Break Multi (March 15-16), Occidental Distance Carnival (March 16) and the Northridge Invite (March 17).
