Cincinnati Bearcats track and field has been busy this week. After sending, a school-record tying, four student-athletes to the NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships - matching the number sent in 2012 and 2005 - the Bearcats have put together a solid showing at the highest level.
Freshman Adrian Valles finished fifth in the pole vault Wednesday, earning First Team All-America honors in the process. He finished with a clearance of 18' 0.5".
Meanwhile, junior Kenya Woodall found herself just outside All-America honors with her run in the 400-meter dash. She ran 53.43 in the event.
Now, junior Erika Hurd and freshman Rebecka Abrahamsson are ready to go on the final day of the NCAA Championships. Hurd will be competing in the high jump, beginning at 4:30 p.m. ET on ESPN3. She is seeking her second All-America honor after placing 15th at the NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships in March.
Abrahamsson will be competing at 5 p.m. ET on ESPN3 in the triple jump. Abrahamsson is the first woman to compete at the NCAA Championships for the Bearcats. She holds the school record in the triple jump, breaking her own previous mark at the NCAA East Preliminary Round with 42' 4.75".
