SEATTLE – For the inaugural Washington Invitational, the Huskies put together one of the best fields to be found in the country this year, and hosted an event worthy of the teams in attendance. Fans saw Jefferson Park Golf Course turned into a perfect setting for cross country on a warm fall day, and the Huskies took a step in the right direction on both the men’s and women’s sides.
When Washington traveled to Eugene, Ore. last season for the Bill Dellinger Invitational, coach Greg Metcalf had an idea: “We should host our own meet.”
The Huskies host the annual Sundodger Invitational, but it is always scheduled before the official start of the “team point scoring” season. Metcalf wanted to create an event where top teams from across the country could congregate in Seattle.
