Peter Herold was the next Bruin to qualify, running a personal-best 8:35.19 in the 3000m Steeplechase. With the new mark, Herold jumps up one spot to fourth on UCLA’s Outdoor Top 10 List.
Misener-Daley punched his ticket to Austin in the 400m race, running a 45.63 in his heat to qualify for nationals.
Through two heats, Jalyn Jackson’s mark of 15.68m held the top spot at the West Prelims men’s triple jump. His jump was good enough to finish in the top 12 at the conclusion of the event, sending the jumper to Texas for the 2023 NCAA Outdoor Track & Field National Championships on June 7-10.
Wright joined Misener-Daley as a multiple-event qualifier; the two paired up with Antonie Nortje and Cameron Reynolds in the 4x400m relay to earn a spot at the national championships. The squad cruised to a second-place finish, running a 3:03.68 to automatically qualify from their heat.
