NCAA Championships--Wednesday afternoon update....

FAYETTEVILLE, Arkansas--A quick update from the NCAA Track & Field Championships in Fayetteville, Arkansas:

In the men's hammer competition, Jake Shanklin, formerly from Spokane CC and now a senior at the University of Wyoming, qualified for the finals in the men's hammer throw with a toss of 210-9 (64.25m), achieved in the second round.

Washington junior Zach Midles wasn't as fortunate, as he missed qualifying for the finals with a toss of 210-0 (64.01m), finishing 13th overall, one place out of a berth in the finals, and three inches short of Pac-10 rival Jason Lewis of Arizona State.

The Huskies' Elisa Bryant finished eighth in her flight of the hammer, as the sophomore threw 179-5 (54.68m) and 21st overall.

Shanklin will compete in the finals on Friday at 1 pm, central time.

Action in the evening session gets underway shortly, with Washington State's defending NCAA champ Jeshua Anderson in action over the 400m hurdles, and Vancouver resident Kara Patterson of Purdue, the 2008 US Olympian in the qualifying flight of the women's javelin.

Live results are available here, and live streaming of the meet is available here.
