SACRAMENTO, Calif. – The Aggie men had eight marks qualify for the NCAA Division I Track & Field Championship meet as the Texas A&M men’s track & field completed day three of the NCAA West First Round hosted by Sacramento State University at Hornet Stadium on Friday.
Connor Schulman highlighted day three for the Maroon & White, winning his heat of the 110m hurdles in 13.43 (w/1.9), the fastest time of the meet. The time is a personal best, topping his previous wind-legal best of 13.59 from the Florida Relays. Schulman improves his No. 4 all-time TAMU performer mark with the mark, which registers as the second-fastest time from both regions, as well as the fastest wind-legal time.
The 4x400m relay squad of Ashton Schwartzman, Omajwa Etiwe, Eric Hemphill III and Auhmad Robinson ended the day with a season best clocking of 3:03.17, the fourth-best time of the day. Schwartzman opened the Aggies in 46.16 before handing off to Etiwe, who split 45.65 to bring the team into third. Hemphill got the baton next, splitting a strong 45.52 to bring the Aggies into second before handing off to Robinson, who held the team’s spot with a 45.58 split. Schwartzman and Etiwe make their return to the national meet, where they took place on last year’s team that finished in fifth-place.
In the high jump, Carter Bajoit started the day for the Aggies, clearing 7-0.5/2.14m to tie for 10th place, earning the final qualification spot to nationals. Prior to his clearance over the qualifying mark, Bajoit only missed one bar of his five attempts at heights under 7-1.5/2.17m. This is his second consecutive time qualifying for the national championship meet.
Immediately after Bajoit completed the high jump competition, the 4x100m team of DeVante Mount, Ryan Martin, Isaiah Teer and Jordan Chopane finished third in their heat to earn automatic qualification to the national meet. Chopane anchored the team home, crossing the line in 39.27, equaling the squad’s season best mark. The 400m relay team will make their first appearance at the NCAA meet since 2021 where they earned first team all-American status with a seventh-place finish.
