Four women will represent the Sun Devils in Eugene

After three days at the NCAA West Preliminary Rounds in Sacramento, CA, the ASU track and field team is sending four representatives to the Outdoor Championships in Eugene, OR next weekend.

The Sun Devils will send redshirt sophomore thrower Kaylee Antill, redshirt senior middle distance runner Alethia Marrero, redshirt senior Maggie Ewen, and redshirt freshman Samantha Noening to Eugene.

Antill secured her spot in the hammer throw with a heave of 63.89m/209.7 feet. 

As for the track, Marrero was the first Sun Devil to advance to the next round when she finished with a time of 2:03.15 in the 800.

Ewen and Noening advanced in shot put, with Noening finishing 11th in the event, and Ewen being the top-qualifier with a throw of 19.13m/62-9.25 feet. 

With a chance to end one of the most historic athletic careers in ASU history, Ewen will get set for one lasting memory at Hayward Field.

All four Sun Devils at the championships will be women, and as for some notable ASU seniors who didn’t advance, but rounded out their careers, Shaunie Morrison and Mason Ford competed in their final events in the maroon and gold.

Ford jumped a 2.06m/6-9 in high jump, and Morrison recorded a 13.71 in the 100-meter hurdles quarterfinal.


The NCAA Outdoor Championships will begin on Wednesday, June 6, and they will run through Saturday, June 9.
