A day after the men’s side advanced two javelin throwers to Eugene, the women’s team was able to add one more to the NCAA Championship squad. Freshman Trinity Spooner qualified for her first trip to the national stage with a throw of 54.75 meters (179’ 7”) on her final toss. Spooner would’ve qualified with her first two throws that were both 52+ meters.

The field group added one more passenger to the NCAA Outdoor Championship travel group as Morgan Smalls punched her ticket in her first of three events this week. Smalls reached 6.18 meters (20’ 3.5”) on her second jump of the day. The senior will also be competing on Saturday in the triple jump and high jump.
