EUGENE, Ore. — BYU junior Curtis Carr set a lifetime best in the 3,000-meter steeplechase and finished fourth overall at the NCAA Division I Outdoor Track and Field Championships on Friday.
Carr finished with a time of 8:40.87 and was the top American finisher in the race. The native of Nashville, Ind., scored five points for BYU to give the Cougars 10 team points. BYU is now tied for 13th overall. "Curtis stayed toward the back of the second pack for most of the race and kept a great pace," coach Mark Robison said.
UTAH STATE SPRINTER EARNS ALL-AMERICAN HONORS: Chari Hawkins joins senior USU sprinter Will Henry as second-team All-Americans after placing 16th in 100 meters with a school-record time of 10.25. Hawkins is USU's first-ever All-American in the heptathlon and first female track All-American since 2011 when Sonia Grabowska earned honorable mention All-America honors in the indoor pole vault. Hawkins is Utah State's 35th track and cross country athlete to earn All-America honors.
