Complete Results | Houston Results

TAMPA, Fla.- A soggy field and a puddle in the throwing ring didn't slow down day one of the inaugural American Athletic Conference Championships Friday afternoon at the USF Track & Field Stadium.

Redshirt freshman Damon Thompson was the first Cougar to score as he finished fourth in the men's hammer throw with a personal best throw of 56.15m (184'-3"). Thompson stepped into the ring with ankle deep waters and threw his best of his career despite the conditions.

After four events of the women's heptathlon, senior Cassie Wiley sits in first place with 3,192 points. She started the day in fifth place as she ran a personal best time of 14.41 in the 100-meter hurdles. Wiley jumped to third after the high jump when she cleared 1.67m (5'-5.75"), a low mark due to the wet weather.

Wiley then moved up to second place with her first place shot put throw of 12.10m (39-8.5). In the final event of the day, Wiley tied her personal best time in the 200m (26.14) to add 785 points and jump to first place. She leads the competition by 83 points.

After three scored events, Louisville leads with 51 points most coming from the distance events. Cincinnati follows with 27 points after winning the men's hammer throw. Houston men sit tied with UConn in sixth with six points.

On the women's side, SMU leads with 47 points with scorers in all three events. Louisville follows with 22 points, mostly coming from the distance events. In third is UCF with 21 points and in fourth is UConn with 15 points.
