NCAA Track and Field Championships: Arizona men's track and field in third, women in 14th heading into final day

Ranked No. 3 in the nation heading into the NCAA Track and Field Championships, the Arizona Wildcats men's squad sits in third place heading into the final day of competition tomorrow in Des Moines, Iowa.

Per Arizona Athletics:

"Day three went pretty much according to plan," head coach Fred Harvey said. "We're right where we thought we'd be considering some of the mishaps that we had. We're fighting really well and we're in a great position right now, especially on the men's side to keep fighting for one of those trophies. I'm excited for Brigetta (Barrett) getting another NCAA Championship, she's just absolutely amazing. It's a great day and we have to keep fighting."

With 24 team points, the Wildcats sit 12 points behind leader Florida and just four points behind second-place Virginia Tech. Arizona still has potential points coming its way tomorrow with Bozidar Antunovic in the shot put finals and Lawi Lalang in the 1500-meter final.

Lalang took home third place in the 5,000m run and teammate Stephen Sambu placed fifth. Tyler Johnson also helped out in the scoring with an eight-place finish in the hammer throw.

The women's team is currently in 14th place with 12 team points after junior Brigetta Barrett took home the outdoors high jump title for the second year in a row, clearing 6-feet, 4-inches in the event.

Sophomore Elvin Kibet will run the 5,000m for the women in the final day of the championships and Arizona also has the 4X400 relay squad in position to add more points to the final total.
