EUGENE, Ore. — Washington junior and Tacoma native Quinn Hale threw the javelin 232 feet, 4 inches to finish fifth in the event at the NCAA track and field championships at Hayward Field on Saturday.

The junior is the highest-placing Husky at nationals this year. Sophomore teammate Carson Fuller placed 20th in the javelin. Oregon junior Sam Crouser won the javelin at 252-7.

Oregon senior Mac Fleet successfully defended his title in the 1,500 meters, denying Arizona senior Lawi Lalang a ninth national title in his final college race.

Fleet’s victory helped push the Oregon men (88 points) to the team’s first outdoor national title since 1984. Texas A&M (75 points) won the women’s title on the final day of the event.
