NCAA track and field: Prouse finishes fifth, two other Lobos make it in top 10

EUGENE, Ore.— – Three athletes from the University of New Mexico track and field athletes finished in the top 10, lead by Charlotte Prouse’s fifth-place finish in the women’s 3,000-meter steeplechase, Saurday at the NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships.

Jamari Drake finished tied for ninth in the women’s high jump, and Amelia Mazza-Downie finished in ninth place in the women’s 5,000 meter run.

Prouse, a senior from London, Ontario earning first-team All-America status for her top eight finish, posted a new personal best in the final race of her collegiate career, 9 minutes, 34.25 seconds). Drake, a senior from Springfield, Illinois, cleared the 5 feet, 11¼ inches (1.81 meters) on her third attempt to match the school’s outdoor record, which she set this season. Her ninth-place finish, good for second-team All-American, is the best ever by a Lobo at this event.

Mazza-Downie, a sophomore from Melbourne, Australia, finished in 15:45.74 in her first appearance at the NCAA Outdoor Championships, leading the second pack of runners in the last three laps.
