SEATTLE -- The NCAA Outdoor Championships bring the 2022 season to a close this week, as Washington takes its largest squad in six years back to Eugene, Ore. and Hayward Field. Sixteen Huskies, ten men and six women, will be vying for national titles and team points this Wednesday through Saturday, June 8-11. Men's events will take place on Wednesday and Friday, and women's events go on Thursday and Saturday, with the exception of the decathlon and heptathlon competitions. Washington is guaranteed of having at least one finalist on all four days.
The meet will be broadcast on a combination of ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU, and ESPN3. Field events will all have dedicated live streams on ESPN3. Wednesday's action will be televised on ESPN2 starting at 4:30 p.m. Thursday will be on ESPNU starting at 5:30 p.m. Action switches over to ESPN2 on Friday starting at 6 p.m., and Saturday will be all on ESPN beginning at 2:30 p.m.
Washington's ten men's entries are the most in the Pac-12 this season, and tied for eighth-most in the NCAA. With the six women's qualifiers, the 16 total Husky entries is tied for 16th-most nationally. In the final national rankings before the championships, the Husky men's team ranks 19th and the women's team ranks 24th.
The women's team is aiming for a third-straight top-20 finish at the championships, after placing 19th last year and 17th in 2019. The women have never had three top-20 finishes in a row. The men's team is looking for its first top-25 finish since the 2016 season, and has its most qualifiers since that year. The Dawgs tied for 21st at the NCAA Indoor meet, and were 13th at NCAA Cross Country, so another top-25 finish outdoors would be just the third time since 2009 that the men made the top-25 at all three championships.
Out of the sixteen Husky entries, eleven are first-timers to the NCAA Outdoor Championships. Those making their outdoor debuts include Roan Allen, Beatrice Asomaning, Makenna Barton, Brian Fay, Anna Gibson, Nathan Green, Luke Houser, Kieran Lumb, Carley Thomas, Ollie Thorner, and Joe Waskom. Ready for their second NCAA Outdoor competition are Ida Eikeng, Cass Elliott, Haley Herberg, and Jayden White. Bringing the most experience is three-time qualifier Elijah Mason in the discus.
Athletes reached Eugene by surviving the West and East Preliminary Championships two weeks ago in Fayetteville, Ark. and Bloomington, Ind., respectively. Each site advanced the top-12 athletes or relays in every event on to Eugene for fields of 24 in each event.
Team scores are compiled by individuals and relays finishing in the top-eight in their events. Points for the top eight places are the standard 10 for first-place, 8 for second, then 6-5-4-3-2-1 for third-through-eighth. The USTFCCCA All-America format remains the same this season, as the top-eight finishers in every event will be named First Team All-Americans, the 9-16 finishers will be Second Team All-Americans, and 17-24 will be honorable mention.
