DES MOINES, Iowa, -- Tyson Williams added to his spectacular season by finishing 12th in the shot put at the NCAA championships Friday at Drake Stadium.
The senior from Grand Junction, recorded a best mark of 59 feet, 5 inches on his first attempt. Williams then threw for distances of 57-10.25 and 58-8.5 in his second and third attempts. Williams' performance earned him second-team all-american honors.
"Tyson competed really well," said Head Coach Brian Bedard. "He was in the second flight of throwers who had to compete in a wet circle. Lighting shut down things for half an hour. He had one throw before that and had to come back and warm-up again. I would have liked to see him compete without the lighting delay."
Williams' performance earned him second-team all-american honors.
Jordan Clarke of Arizona State won the event, with a throw of 64-9.75.
"I'm proud of how he competed all year and how he competed here," added Bedard.
