SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Three more Sacramento State track and field student-athletes competed in the second day of the NCAA West Preliminary on Friday at Hornet Stadium. The Hornets advanced one athlete to the next round during the day and nearly had another earn a trip to the NCAA Outdoor Championships.
Kyle Peterson opened the day for the Hornets in the men's discus and finished in 17th place. The junior started with a threw of 162-03 before gaining 10 feet (172-08) on his second throw. Peterson again bettered his mark on his third try with a best of 175-01. That distance ended up being the best in the first of three heats and the Oakdale, Calif., native sat in third following the second heat. However, his hopes of advancing to the NCAA Championships vanished in the third heat as 14 of the final 16 throwers surpassed his mark.
Andre Lindsey moved on to Saturday's quarterfinals behind a career-best performance in the 110-hurdles. The senior ran 14.00 which easily bettered his season best of 14.09 and crushed his career best of 14.05 which came last season at the NCAA West Preliminary. Lindsey finished third in his heat to earn an automatic berth to the quarterfinals and finished with the 11th fastest time of the day. His time also moved him into fourth place in Sacramento State history.
Shilah Bedingfield concluded her magnificent freshman season by finishing in 44th place in the women's 200. Bedingfield, who also competed in the 400 on Friday, ran 24.59 to place seventh in the fifth heat.
Sacramento State will have five student-athletes competing on Saturday in the final day of the meet. Lindsey will start the quarterfinals of the 110-hurdles at 7:05 p.m. Emilia Del Hoyo gets under way in the women's triple jump at 4:30 while Darius Armstead, Jah Strange and Mohamed Abdullah will compete in the men's triple jump at 7:30 p.m.
