AUSTIN, Texas – The Fresno State track and field team had quite the season as they sent the most qualifiers in four years to the NCAA West Preliminary Round this weekend, but their remarkable season came to a close Saturday as none of the 14 individuals who qualified were able to advance past the preliminary round.
On Saturday, Mountain West silver medalist Michelle Rose recorded a 138’-2” (42.11m ) throw in the javelin, 17’-3” from the finals qualifying mark.
Megan McKee, one of four Bulldogs to compete in multiple events in Austin, threw a 47’-3.50” (14.41m) toss in the shot put. It was 5”-10’ from the qualifying mark.
Justin Lovingood, who recorded a personal best 50’-5.50” (15.38m) triple jump at the MW Championships, registered a 50’-3.25” (15.32m) mark in the preliminary round.
The men’s team of Brennen Davis, Cameron Parker, Devante O’Connor and Christopher Brusenback sprinted to a 42.15 second time in 4x100m. The foursome claimed the MW Championships after recording a 40.30 time on May 11.
The NCAA Championships will be held in Eugene, Ore., June 5-8.
