Schuh and Agnew Top Regional Marks at NCAA West First Round
May 29, 2014
Fayetteville, Ark. – Seniors Spencer Agnew and Carlye Schuh of the Marquette University men’s and women’s track and field teams each topped their regional marks Thursday on the first day of competition at the West Preliminary Rounds of the 2014 NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships at John McDonnell Field.
"Carlye, Spencer and John all competed hard today," Marquette head coach Bert Rogers said. "Unfortunately things didn't quite fall into place like we had hoped they would. I am proud of, and thankful for Carlye and Spencer. They made a positive impact on our team and Marquette and I wish them the best in the future. John has a bright future and we will be hearing more from him in the years to come."
Schuh, the 2014 BIG EAST Conference women’s indoor and outdoor long jump champion, placed 20th at a distance of 5.98 meters (19 feet, 7.50 inches) and was fifth in the second flight.
The Appleton, Wisconsin native entered the meet ranked 31st in the region with a season-best mark of 6.06 meters (19 feet, 10.75 inches). She sat 24th in the region prior to last year’s meet where she fouled on all three attempts and failed to record a distance.
Agnew was the 48th and final runner invited to compete in the 1,500-meter run and placed 41st in a time of 3:52.46. The Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin native has a season-best time of 3:46.50, which he recorded on April 18 at the Bryan Clay Invitational. That time is the fourth-best mark in Marquette history.
Freshman John Krzyszkowski also competed and was 46th in the men’s javelin with a first attempt mark of 55.64 meters (182 feet, 6 inches). He fouled on each of his second and third throws.
Krzyszkowski was the 2014 BIG EAST champion in the event with a personal-best of 65.31 meters (214 feet, 3 inches) and entered the meet ranked 28th in the West Region.
