Kriz and Crumley Compete in Second Day of USA Track Championships

June 20, 2003

STANFORD, Calif. - The pair of All-America throwers Adam Kriz and Elisa Crumley competed in second day action with their debuts in the hammer and javelin in the USA Championships, held at Stanford's Cobb Track and Angell Field. The top-three finishers earned chances to compete in the World Championships in Paris, France from Aug. 21-30 provided they also meet individual event qualifying marks from this season.

Kriz finished 18th in the event (202-9) won by James Parker of the U.S. Air Force (first, 239-7) who won by three inches over New York AC's John McEwen (second, 239-4).

The Toledo, Ore., native made his third NCAA appearance a week before to earn his first ALl-America honor (fifth, 220-2) after also qualifying indoors in 2003 in the weight throw. His personal best (221-3) from his second straight Pac-10 title ranks him fourth all-time for the Ducks.

Altogether during the year, he topped his preseason personal best of 210-7 in six of 10 appearances. Historically, he stood out as another of the team's Cinderella stories from its storied hammer history, walking-on as a freshman after taking top-three finishes as a prep senior at Toledo High School in 1998 in the shot put (second, 52-3 3/4) and discus (third, 156-11). A year later he took sixth in the 1999 U.S. Junior Championships (162-9) with a then-personal best, and was a four-time Pac-10 scorer in the event.

Crumley recorded a daily best of 133-3 on her first throw and followed with two fouls to finish 15th overall. Unattached entrant Erica Wheeler pulled a surprise win in the event (first, 186-6) over former national record holder Kim Kreiner of Nike (second, 185-0).

Crumley ended a year that was slowed by shoulder surgery last fall, while her rehab forced her to use shortened approaches in virtually all of her apperances this spring. All-time she ranks second for the Ducks with her freshman best of 169-7 and was an All-American in her NCAA debut in 2002 (12th) and competed in 2003. Off the track she was a nominee for Regional Academic All-America honors and also was a Pac-10 All-Academic honorable mention selection.

Compelete meet results are available at the www.usatf.org website.

Saturday's third-day action will featured return USA appearances by pole vaulters Niki McEwen and Becky Holliday and javelin thrower John Stiegeler with the events scheduled to start at noon and 12:15 pm (Pacific Time).

Track fans can catch two-hour broadcasts of the meet Saturday (6/21) on NBC-TV from 1-3 pm (Pacific Time) and again on Sunday (6/22) from 1-3 pm (Pacific Time) on ESPN 2. A rebroadcast of the recent NCAA Championships from Sacramento (6/11-14) will also be shown on Saturday from noon- 2 pm (Pacific Time) on CBS.
