Sanders Notches New Javelin PR at NCAA West Regionals
COLLEGE STATION, Texas – Freshman Sara Sanders posted a javelin PR on the Oregon State track and field team's first day of action at the NCAA West Regionals in E.B. Cushing Stadium.
"Batya (Beard) gave it her all," said head coach Louie Quintana. "She was really going for it but ran into trouble deep in the race and just ran herself into exhaustion. Without a doubt, I am very proud of her, and she's had a heck of a year.
"The same is to be said for the throwers. They have had a great year. I know Lindsay (McShane) is disappointed not to make the NCAA Championships, but she had a great year. I am proud of Sara (Sanders), she was as awesome today."
Sanders recorded a throw of 47.86m for a new PR to finish 23rd in her first NCAA Regional appearance.
In what was a historic senior season for Lindsay McShane, she capped off her OSU career with a hammer throw of 60.86m to finish 17th in the West Regional field. She ends her career as the top performer in the hammer throw in program history with a distance of 64.47m.
Sydney Guthrie-Baker finished her career at Oregon State by placing 37th in the hammer throw with a distance of 56.25m at her first career NCAA West Regionals.
Next up: The Beavers will wrap up the NCAA West Regionals on Saturday with Kaylee Mitchell and Grace Fetherstonhaugh in the 3,000m steeplechase at 4:10 pm (PT), while Audrey Lookner will race in the 5,000m at 6:30 pm.
