Four Roadrunners set for NCAA Outdoor Championships

SAN ANTONIO — Bashiru Abdullahi, Oreoluwa Adamson, Joel McFarlane and Jack Turner will represent UTSA at the NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championships this week at Mike A. Myers Stadium in Austin, Texas.
Abdullahi will race in the semifinal round of the men's 110-meter hurdles at 7:32 p.m. Wednesday, June 7, with the final slated for 8:42 p.m. Friday, June 9. The senior from Nigeria is seeking his second straight All-America certificate in the event after earning second-team honors last year following a 15th-place finish. He punched his ticket to Austin after clocking a time of 13.61 seconds to finish eighth in the quarterfinal round at the NCAA West Preliminary.
Adamson is looking to collect her second All-America certificate of the calendar year, as she is set to appear in the women's long jump at 9 p.m. Thursday, June 8. The junior from England garnered second-team accolades with a 15th-place showing at the NCAA Indoor Championships in March. She has advanced to the NCAA Outdoor for the first time after recording a seventh-place leap of 6.29 meters (20-7.75) at the NCAA West Preliminary.
McFarlane and Turner will compete in the men's decathlon, which is scheduled to get underway at 2:30 p.m. Wednesday and 12 p.m. Thursday. Turner, who hails from England, enters the competition ranked sixth nationally after piling up a school record 8,011 points while winning his third Conference USA crown last month. McFarlane, a native of Scotland, heads to Austin with the 22nd-best point total in the field, a personal best 7,661 points scored during a bronze-medal performance at the league meet.
UTSA boasts 36 All-Americans who have combined to collect a total of 69 certificates in the sports of cross country and indoor and outdoor track & field. A total of 21 men have collected 41 certificates, while 15 women have picked up 28 honors. A total of 47 of the All-America certificates have been earned outdoors, 30 on the men's and 17 by the women's program.
