Marquette Track & Field has four athletes competing in the 2016 NCAA Outdoor West Regional, which begins on Thursday, May 26. It's being hosted by the University of Kansas, and the Jayhawks will have a limited amount of live streaming for you to watch the Golden Eagles attempt to advance to the national meet in Oregon in June.
Here's the schedule of events, along with the live video links as needed:
EDITOR'S NOTE: The entire Thursday schedule was wiped out by inclement weather in Kansas. What follows is the updated schedule.
Friday, May 27
9:00am: Men's Long Jump
Dwayne Dash, Jr., will represent the Blue & Gold in this event. He's seeded 45th out of 48 competitors with a distance of 7.30 meters (23 feet, 11 inches). The good news for Dash is that he's peaking at the right time, having hit that distance to win the Big East title earlier in May.
10:10am: Women's 400 Meter Dash
Sophomore Cassy Goodrich is seeded 24th in this event with a time of 53.73 seconds. She posted that time at The Beach Invitational back on April 15th, and finished second at the Big East Championships with a time of 55.64.
10:30am: Men's Javelin
Seeded 16th in the region, John Krzyszkowski is the first of two Golden Eagles who are in serious competition for one of the 12 spots that advance to the national meet. Johnny Jav broke his own school record on April 23 at the Illinois Twilight when he hurled a distance of 69.23 meters (227 feet, 8 inches). He threw an at the time school record 65.54 meters (215 feet) in last year's West Regional, which was just five feet, 10 inches short of advancing to the national meet. You'd have to figure that another record would send Krzyszkowski to Eugene.
2:30pm: Men's High Jump
Wally Ellenson's final opportunity to win an outdoor high jump national championship gets started on Saturday evening. He's a favorite to be amongst the 12 to advance to Oregon, with his best jump of 2.20 meters (7 feet, 2.5 inches) ranking eighth amongst competitors at the West Regional. 2.20 meters earned Ellenson top honors at the 2015 West Regional, and he'll be looking to go 4-for-4 with national meet appearances after getting there once with Marquette and twice with Minnesota.
The original plan for live streaming was to start at 4:55pm for Friday's events. That was before they reset the entire meet to take place in just two days, though. Originally, Marquette was going to have people competing on all three days, now all four Golden Eagles will be in action on Friday. You'll probably want to keep your eyes on @KUTrack to see if the live stream gets started earlier in the day.
UPDATE (5/27, 8:33am): Live streaming is up and running since 8am!
