Eight Huskies Advance In NCAA Track And Field Championships

Jimmy Brookman, a junior javelin thrower from Redmond, Wash. advanced to the NCAA Track and Field championships on Thursday after finishing fifth for the Washington Huskies in the West Preliminary championships in Austin, Texas. Brookman threw a personal record distance of 233 feet and 11 inches.

This will be Brookman's first ever trip to the NCAA Finals, a fortunate occurrence as he initially considered redshirting this season after undergoing Tommy John surgery in 2011. Thanks to a successful rehabilitation, Brookman all of a sudden finds himself reaching personal bests in his third meet of the season.

See who else advanced past the first round of the West Preliminary championships at the University of Texas after the jump.

The following Huskies moved on to the quarterfinal round in Austin:

  • James Alaka, 100m dash
  • Christine Babcock, 1500m run
  • Jordan Carlson, 400m dash
  • Katie Flood, 1500m run
  • Maurice McNeal, 400m dash
  • Chelsea Orr, 1,500m run
  • Kayla Stueckle, 400m hurdles
These athletes will be in action on Friday, starting at 1 p.m.. Coverage can be found on the Huskies' official athletics website, GoHuskies.com.
