Hammer-Senior Scott Moser placed 12th, with a mark of 202-4 (he entered the meet at No. 11 on the collegiate chart, 210-11.50, May 4, No. 5 in school history). Moser does earn All-American status (top eight Americans), for the fourth time in his career. The two-time defending Pac-10 discus champion, Moser on Friday will compete in the discus competition (No. 4 on the current collegiate chart, 200-3, May 4). Last year at the 2001 NCAA Outdoor, Moser placed third in the discus.
Long Jump-sophomore Juane Armon, who injured his right knee at the Pac-10 meet two weeks ago, was unable to make the finals of the long jump, placing 18th (24-3.75). Armon entered the meet with the No. 6 mark (26-3, May 4, No. 5 in school history) but the knee injury hindered him throughout the event.
400m IH-junior Kyle Erickson's injured left hamstring prevented him from finishing his heat (almost immediately out of the starting block Erickson pulled up). The hamstring injury also kept him out of the Pac-10 meet two weeks ago. Erickson came into the meet with the No. 5 mark (49.62, 5/4, No. 4 in school history).
200m-senior Michael Lipscomb, running in heat one, placed fourth (20.83) and did not advance to Saturday's final.
