BYU Track and Field advances to NCAA nationals

PROVO, UT – Following their strong performance at the Western Regionals competition, the BYU Cougars have qualified to compete at Nationals.

Last weekend, the BYU track team contended with some of the top athletic schools in the country. By the conclusion of the competition, seventeen BYU athletes were confirmed to qualify for National competition.

400-meter hurdler Brenna Porter spoke briefly regarding her fall during an event. “I kind of regained what was going on [and was like], ‘oh man, I’m not gonna qualify for nationals.’ And in that moment I was like, ‘you know what, I just gotta get up and I gotta finish this race.'”

Although Porter failed to qualify for Nationals, she was still able to cross the finish line, inspiring many of her teammates.

The Cougars’ performance at regionals is their best qualifying run since 2004. the NCAA National Competition will be hosted by the University of Oregon at a later date.
