ASU track and field had an incredible performance at the NCAA West Regionals, sending 11 of its athletes to Eugene Oregon for the NCAA championship taking place June 8 through June 11.
The team faced top schools and rivals such as Oregon, Texas A&M, University of Arizona and more. In the first day of competition on Friday, the field event's had their time to shine as the first three of the 11 Sun Devils earned a spot in the Outdoor Championship. Those three were junior CJ Albertson in the 3000 steeplechase, sophomore Maggie Ewen in the hammer throw and freshman Hudson Keffer in the javelin throws.
Ewen went three for three in the regionals, qualifying for the shot put and discus throw as well. Each time, she placed into the top ten, making her the top overall player on the ASU track team.
On Saturday, the team placed seven more competitors, including Ewen, into the NCAA Outdoor Championship.
This featured senior Ahmed Hassan in the shot put, senior Josh Dixon and redshirt Tim White both in the triple jump, redshirt junior Keyasia Tibbs in women's triple jump, graduate transfer Reggie Lewis in the 200 and seniors Isaiah Underwood, Benjamin Trotter and Freshman Brandon Hasson for the 4x100 relays.
With the season coming to close very soon, these Sun Devils will compete their heart out in Eugene for that moment of glory in which they may be crowned national champions.
