How to watch BYU and Utah athletes at the NCAA Track and Field Championships in Eugene

Eye on the Y: BYU will send over a dozen players to the NCAA Championships in Eugene. Here's the full list of qualifiers.

(BYU Athletics) Cougar runner James Corrigan won the Big 12 title in the 3,000-meter steeplechase in Waco, Texas, this year. He will be one of 21 Cougars heading to the NCAA championships in Eugene, Oregon, next week.

The NCAA Track and Field Championships are taking place this week and the Cougars have title chances in several events.

In the men's event, Dallin Shurts is the second seeded discus thrower. His main competitors are Francois Prinsloo of South Alabama and Dimitrios Pavlidis of Kansas.

“I've finally gotten rid of that resentment,” Shurts said after qualifying. “I've been working on the same key words for months. It's just a matter of refining them and making them a little better.”

BYU will field several runners in the 3,000-meter steeplechase, including sophomore James Corrigan and freshman Wyatt Haughton. Southern Utah's Hayden Harward will also compete in the event.

“I'm really excited to be going to the national championships. Last year I missed it by half a second, so this year I was happy to be in a situation where I didn't have to guess if I was going to make it,” said Corrigan. “It feels good to be consistently fighting for the win and I'm gaining the confidence I need for the next race.”

For the women, senior Jaslyn Gardner will run the 100-meter race.

“I feel really good,” she said. “I was a little injured at the beginning of this season, so I needed a little patience with myself to get to the point where I could improve my times a little faster. So it feels good to have such a big drop-off.”

Cierra Allphin will compete in the women's high jump. Both are seeded sixth in their discipline. Gardner ran the 100 meters in 11 seconds. That's less than two-tenths of a second less than first-place Jadyn Mays of Oregon.

BYU will send several distance runners. Riley Chamberlain will run the 1,500 meters. Sadie Sargent will run the 5K. Jenna Hutchins will run the 10K.
