EUGENE, Ore. - Three student-athletes competed in day two of the NCAA Division I Outdoor Track & Field Championships at Hayward Field on Thursday afternoon.
Senior Rick Fenton started the day off for the Cougars by throwing a distance of 61.20m (200-9) to place 19th in the men's hammer throw.
On the women's side, junior Ngozi Onwumere, who was competing in her second event at Nationals, ran a time of 23.68 in the 200-meter dash to place 21st. The Mesquite, Texas, native's time failed to advance to her to Saturday's finals.
Teammate sophomore Sade-Mariah Greenidge ran the second fastest time of the season (13.18) to place 14th overall in the semifinals of the women's 100-meter hurdles. Despite her time landing her at the No. 4 spot of the program's all-time list, it was not fast enough to qualify her for the final round.
Sophomore John Horton will compete in the men's triple jump at 2:30 p.m. (CST), Saturday.
Live coverage of the meet will be available on ESPNU on Friday & Saturday.
