BOULDER, Colo. – Arizona Track and Field concluded the final Pac-12 Championships on Sunday at Colorado’s Potts Field. Sir Jonathan Sims led the way for the Wildcats, winning the men’s triple jump with a personal best leap to earn his first career conference championship title.
 
Other podium finishers for the Wildcats included Zachary Extine placing second in the men’s 110m hurdles, the men’s 4x100m relay team placing second, and Antonia Sanchez Nunez placing third in the women’s 400m hurdles. In total, the Wildcats scored points from 10 individuals and four relay teams. Both the men’s and women’s teams finished sixth overall in the competition.
 
“This was the best competitive meet that we’ve been apart of as a team this season,” said Head Coach Fred Harvey. “We maxed out our points in the throws, jumps, hurdles, and sprints and did everything we could to be competitive and to be in the thick of the fight. The number one goal for us is to score points at the national level. I was so proud of what this team did this weekend. They competed hard, especially with some of the underdog performances. “
