EUGENE, Ore. - Utah State sprinter Will Henry concluded his collegiate career by finishing 16th in the semifinals of the 100m at the NCAA Finals held here at Hayward Field Wednesday night. With his top 16 finish, Henry garnered second-team All-America honors.
Henry, a senior from Richmond, Calif. (Sacramento CC) entered the NCAA Finals as the 24th and final qualifier, but finished 16th after recording a school-record time of 10.25. Henry's previous personal best in the 100m was 10.41 set twice toward the end of the 2013 season, including at the first round of the NCAA Championships two weeks ago in Austin, Texas. The previous school record in the 100m was 10.28 set by DJ Smith in 2007.
Henry is Utah State's first-ever All-American in the 100m and first All-American in any event since 2011 when Clint Silcock earned second-team All-America honors in the indoor high jump and Sonia Grabowska earned honorable mention All-America honors in the indoor pole vault. Overall, Henry is Utah State's 34th track and cross country athlete to earn All-America honors for the 69th time.
Utah State sophomore high jumper and heptathlete Chari Hawkins will also be competing for Utah State at the NCAA Finals and begin competition in the heptathlon on Thursday, June 6 at 2 p.m. (MT) and conclude on Friday, June 7. Hawkins will also compete in the high jump finals on Saturday, June 8 at 1:45 p.m. (MT). Hawkins enters the NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Finals ranked tied for 13th in the high jump and 20th in the heptathlon.
