Did you think Arizona sports were done for the year? Wrong. The NCAA Track and Field Championships got started on Wednesday, and Arizona's Pau Tonnesen leads the decathlon after Day One. That's a school record after one day of the event, and he set personal records in four of the five events. Also, Collins Kibet advanced to the 800m final, which will be run on Friday. Gerhard de Beer also throws discus on Friday
