    HOUSTON - University of Houston sprinter Errol Nolan finished in third place in the men's 400-meter at the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) World Junior Championship Thursday evening.

    Running out of lane eight, Nolan turned in a 46.36 time despite the wet and soggy conditions that hampered the athletes in Moncton, Canada. Nolan trailed the pack heading into the latter half of the race before a strong push brought him home to the podium.

    "I tried to catch up and I did make up some ground toward the end," Nolan said. "I didn't want to go home empty-handed so I gave it everything I had."

    The Rosenberg, Texas, native was the top American finisher in the event, placing ahead of fellow American Joshua Mance. Kirani James of Grenada won the event in 45.89.

    Nolan will compete on the American 4x400-meter relay team Saturday at 2:35 p.m. before returning home after a very successful freshman campaign. Nolan was the Conference USA Outdoor Freshman of the Year and the C-USA Indoor Freshman of the Meet and High Point Scorer of the Meet.
