EUGENE, Ore. - Colorado State track & field senior Trevor Brown was on pace to finish top three in the 400-meter hurdles Friday at Hayward Field, but a crucial mistake at the last barrier cost him. The first-team All-American took eighth in his final race at the NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championships.

The school-record holder, who had improved dramatically in the 400-meter hurdles over the last two years of his collegiate career, got off to probably too good of a start, pacing the pack in first place down the back stretch.

After rounding the final curve he had fallen to third, but looked to be gaining on Miles Ukaoma from Nebraska and Michael Stigler from Kansas to make things interesting. The senior caught the final hurdle and lost his balance, falling just before the finish line. He clocked a time of 1 minute, 4.02 seconds.

"It was a rough race for Trevor," commented sprints coach Karim Abdel Wahab. "He ran a faster first 200 than he needed to, and got too fatigued at the home stretch, which led to hitting the 10th hurdle and falling down. He got up and finished his race as a champion. Trevor did great things for the Rams and had a great career on the track."

Brown will leave Colorado State as a five-time All-American, once in the 400 hurdles, three times in the 110 hurdles and once in the 60-meter hurdles. It is the most accolades a Ram across any sport at CSU has won since national champion runner Bryan Berryhill from 1998 to 2001.

Aaliyah Pete will be the final athlete to compete for the Green & Gold Saturday in the shot put. She'll take to the throwing circle as the No. 11 seed at 2 p.m. MT.
