Two from UB compete in NCAA track championships

Two University at Buffalo athletes return to the NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships this weekend.

Senior Jonathan Jones (Portville) will make his third straight appearance at the NCAAs while junior Mike Morgan advanced to his second straight national championship meet, held Friday and Saturday in Fayetteville, Ark.

Morgan’s 5,797 points ranks third among the 16 entries in the heptathlon. He finished seventh last year to earn first team All-America honors and he holds the school record in the event (5,772).

Jones set the Buffalo and Mid-American Conference championship record with a throw of 20.6 meters. The four-time All-American placed 13th and 12th in the last two indoor championships.
