NCAA Midwest Regional Results

Lincoln, Neb. - Rice sophomore Jason Colwick placed second in the pole vault at the NCAA Midwest Regional at the University of Nebraska's Ed Weir Stadium. Colwick posted a mark 5.41/17-9 and then passed on jumping at 5.51m/18-1 to make attempts at 18-4, which would have been a personal best.

Kansas' Jordan Scott, also a sophomore, cleared 5.51m/18-1 to win the event. Colwick still holds the nation's top mark at 5.55m/18-2.25.

"We had a very good day with Jason Colwick placing second in the pole vault," said Rice head coach Jon Warren. "He had a chance to win it by clearing 18-4 to set a personal best, but was unable to make it. Ugo (Nduaguba) did well in the triple (jump) and has a shot at earning a trip to nationals."

In the triple jump, freshman Ugo Nduaguba placed 12th with a mark of 15.24m/50-0, while senior Devon Fanfair finished 22nd with a jump of 13.99m/45-10.75.

Rice concluded the two-day affair with eight points to place 23rd overall.
