28 NCAA qualifiers and a DII Champion

Nick Miller Oklahoma State

 

28 British and Irish athletes secure spots in Eugene and one athlete wins an NCAA DII title – an excellent return from the penultimate weekend in the collegiate track and field season.

Whilst many athletes were competing, there are just the three meets to report on from the weekend – the two D1 regional qualifiers and the NCAA DII championships.

Starting with the West regional, in true British fashion the first thing worth mentioning is the weather. With the meet taking place in the heart of tornado alley during peak tornado season, it is no surprise that the weather heavily effected proceedings.  A major storm powered through the mid-west on Thursday, wiping out the entire days timetable. All events subsequently had to be squeezed into Friday and Saturday, which was only possible by making all track events straight finals. That is why there are significantly less results in the West than the East. However, the conditions were the same for everybody and 17 British and Irish athletes managed to advance out of the West. Top performer goes to Nick Miller. In just his second outdoor competition of the year, he narrowly missed his own British record with a throw of 76.93. This led to a very comfortable win, and he will head to Eugene as the favourite to finally pick up an NCAA title in his senior year.

Elsewhere in the West, six New Mexico Brits advanced, which we would guess must be close to a record of one school qualifying that many Brits in the same year? What was most impressive though was the full range of events and qualifiers being covered by our domestic athletes. Sprinters, distance runners, throwers, and jumpers all managed to qualify out of the West this year.

In the East, it was business as usual for Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake. He completed another victorious 100, 200 sprint double, and again went sub 20 in the 200m. However, unfortunately the wind reading this time was +3.6, comfortably outside the legal limit of +2.0. Like the West, there was a nice range of qualifiers from both genders across a range different events.

The division II championships were held this weekend in Florida and Oliver Aitchison lived up to his tag as favourite by winning his second successive 1500m title. From here, he will no doubt have aspirations of breaking 3.40 later in the season and should certainly be one to watch at the British Championships in July.

Full results from the three weekend meetings are below. All that remains now before the year is up is the NCAA Championships, being held in ‘Track town’ Eugene, Oregon. As always we encourage readers to notify us of any omissions or corrections with our results and qualifiers. ‘Q’ indicates that an athlete has qualified for Eugene.
