The three-time All-American sophomore passed all three throws in the finals since his spot was secure.

He joins Derek Eager in the javelin and Marcus Nilsson in the decathlon as qualifiers for NCAAs.

Junior Dillon Stucky won his flight in the triple jump and finished 25th overall with a jump of 49-10.

In the steeplechase, senior Kent Morikawa finished 10th in heat three and 32nd overall with a time of 9:17.26. He does not advance to the NCAA Championships.
