Caulfield Ends Bruin Career At NCAA Championships On Saturday

June 14, 2008

Complete Results

On the fourth and final day of the NCAA Outdoor Championships in Des Moines, IA, senior John Caulfield ended his career with an 11th-place finish in the shot put as he was the sole competitor for the Bruins on Saturday. Caulfield posted a mark of 57-7.50 and was just 20 centimeters shy of finishing in the top-nine.

Caulfield ends his career as a 2008 NCAA Indoor All-American (4th overall) with top careers marks of 63-8.25 outdoors and 63-7 indoors. He also had a career discus mark of 197-10.

This was a disappointing meet for us," said head coach Art Venegas. "We had high expectations coming in and unfortunately things just kind of fell apart. We'll go home and regroup and come back harder next season."

The Bruins did have four athletes earn All-American honors during the meet - Greg Garza in the discus, Henry Hagenbuch in the steeplechase, Boldizsar Kocsor in the hammer and Johnny Quinn in the pole vault. As a team, the Bruins scored 7.50 points and finished in a tie for 34th-place. Florida State won the team title with 52 points, while LSU and Auburn tied for second with 44 points each.

Although the collegiate season is now over, Bruin athletes will continue to compete as the USATF Junior National Championships will be held next weekend in Columbus, OH and the U.S. Olympic Trials will be held in Eugene Oregon later this month.

Five youngsters will head to the junior meet with Spencer and Dylan Knight commpeting in the steeplechase, Taylor Hobson and Bryson Banks competing in the jumps, and Mark Weber and Thomas Nagengast competing in the throws. At Trials, Garza, Kocsor, and possibly Cory Primm and Kevin Craddock will compete.
