Caulfield Heads to Arkansas to Compete in Shot Put at NCAA Indoor Championships
March 6, 2007
Junior John Caulfield will be the lone representative for the No. 20 men's track and field team at the 2007 NCAA Indoor Championships in Fayetteville, AR this weekend. Caulfield will compete in the shot put on Saturday afternoon. This season, Caulfield has posted a best mark of 62-5, a throw which ranks 11th in the country.
With his performances this season, Caulfield has been projected to finish eighth (according to Trackwire's Dandy Dozen), which would give him the first All-American honor of his career.
Kevin Craddock, who is a redshirt freshman in indoor track, was slated to compete in the 60m hurdles, but will withdraw from the event. Craddock had posted the No. 4 time in the nation this season, 7.73, and was projected to finish second at the week's National Championships, but fell ill last week and is not yet back to full strength. Craddock and his coaches felt it was in his best interest to pull out of the meet and rest up for what could be am amazing sophomore campaign for the Bruins.
