MILWAUKEE - Marquette University freshman Max McClelland will compete in the 3,000-meter steeplechase at the USA Track & Field Junior National Championships hosted by Sacramento State University on Saturday, June 24.

He qualified for the USATF Junior National Championships thanks to a career-best effort at the BIG EAST Outdoor Championships in May, where he took ninth place in the 3,000-meter steeplechase with a time of 9:28.26.

McClelland will compete against 10 other qualifiers in Saturday's race, which is scheduled for a 7:20 Central time start. The USATF will host a live webcast via
