SACRAMENTO, Calif. — A season best from Darius Armstead in the men's triple jump allowed him to advance to the NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championships. Armstead jumped 52-05.50 on his second attempt and finished in fourth place at the NCAA West Preliminary on Saturday at Hornet Stadium. The top 12 finishers in the event earned a spot in the NCAA Outdoor Championships in Eugene, Ore., on June 6-9.
Armstead opened the competition with a mark of 51-11.75 before gaining nearly six inches on his next jump. He earned his first trip to the outdoor championships and followed long jumper Dylan Barger who represented Sacramento State last season in the long jump.
Sacramento State also had two other competitors in the event. Jah Strange was 31st with a best of 49-03.75 on his third attempt and Mohamed Abdullah was 44th at 46-09.00.
Despite a career best, Andre Lindsey just missed advancing to Eugene in the men's 110-hurdles. Lindsey ran a wind-legal time of 13.93 and placed 14th overall. His time left him just .03 seconds off the final qualifying time for the outdoor nationals. Lindsey had never run better that 14.05 prior to the meet only to run 14.00 in the first round and better that mark on Saturday. He now ranks fourth in school history.
Emilia Del Hoyo finished in 44th place in the women's triple jump. The junior fouled on her first two attempts before jumping 38-04.75 on her third jump. Del Hoyo was the Big Sky champion in the event with a career best of 40-04.00.
