FAYETTEVILLE, Ark.--Four from the University of Missouri track and field squad participated Friday in the first of two days of the NCAA Indoor Championships in Fayetteville, Ark. Junior Marcus Mayes earned All-America honors in the men's 800-meter, finishing as the seventh-fastest American in the field. Junior Hans Uldal stands seventh after day one of the men's heptathlon with junior Bjorn Sommerfeldt ending day one in 10th. Senior Ashley Patten qualified for the national final of the women's 800-meter for the third-consecutive year with a solid preliminary-round performance.


 

 

 

Uldal (Arendal, Norway) finished day one with the seventh-best score of 3,089. Uldal made his biggest strides of the day in the long jump, as he added five inches to his indoor personal best, leaping 23-7¼ (7.19m). In his other events, Uldal ran a 7.28 in the 60-meter dash, marked 47-¼ (14.33m) in the shot put, and leaped over 6-1¾ (1.88m) in the high jump. Uldal is 49 points off his school-record pace.

 

Sommerfeldt is right on his personal-best pace through day one after scoring 2,984 points to stand 10th. Sommerfeldt achieved a new personal-best in the high jump with a leap of 6-3¼ (1.91m) to carry the day. In the other events, Sommerfeldt clocked a 7.41 in the 60-meter, leaped to 23-2 in the long jump, and threw 43-11¼ in the shot put.

 

Texas' Trey Hardee and Donovan Kilmartin are 1-2 after the first day. Hardee is 30 points over his own collegiate-record pace.

 

Ashley Patten (Clarkston, Mich.) made her third-consecutive national-indoor final in the women's 800 after a hard-fought clocking of 2:05.94. Patten's heat was full of lead changes, elbows, and cut-offs, but Patten survived to surge from the back of the pack in the final of the four laps to place third in her heat, claiming the fastest time by a non-automatic qualifier.

 

Junior Marcus Mayes (Sand Springs, Okla.) earned the second All-America honor of his career, after placing 13th overall and as the seventh-fastest American in the men's 800. Mayes ran a 1:51.97 in his race. Mayes earned All-America honors at the 2005 indoor championships, helping the distance medley relay team to an eighth-place finish.

 

On Saturday, Uldal and Sommerfeldt will complete their competition in the men's heptathlon. Also, Ashley Patten will run in the 800-meter finals and freshman Chris Rohr will try his luck in the men's weight throw.

Cantwell 10th at IAAF World Indoor

MOSCOW - Tiger post-collegian Christian Cantwell (Eldon, Mo.) finished 10th in the men's shot put at the IAAF World Indoor Championships in Moscow early Friday morning. Cantwell, the defending champion in the event, did not make it out of the qualifying round as he marked a nominal 65-3½ (19.90m). Cantwell, who seemingly made a quick comeback after having knee surgery within the last six months to qualify for this meet, was not very happy with his performance.

 

"I felt good, I warmed up easy," Cantwell said after the meet. "It was such a long delay until the start. I felt good on my first throw, I just palmed it. On my second throw I fouled and my third throw I went with what I had and I thought it was going to be good when it left my hand, but it wasn't good enough. It's my fault. The burden of error goes on me. I did everything I wanted to do but it just didn't happen today. It's not the first time."

 

Fellow American Resse Hoffa, who finished runner-up to Cantwell in 2004 in this meet, won his first Gold, winning with a huge personal-best throw of 72-6½ (22.11m). That throw topped Cantwell's previous world-best indoor throw for the decade.

 

OLN will air tape-delayed coverage of the meet on Sunday, starting at 2 p.m., central.
