uk track 300LEXINGTON, Ky. (5/13/13) – Raymond Dykstra Improved on each of his six javelin throws finishing up with a top toss of 71.65 meters / 235 feet 1 inch that was good for a runner up finish at the Southeastern Conference Track and Field Championships on Saturday.
 
Dykstra, a 2012 All-American in the javelin, finished as the SEC runner up in his signature event for the second consecutive season. His finish will earn him All-SEC honors for the second time in as many seasons as well.
 
Dykstra opened the afternoon with a throw that went 65.92m/216’3”. He gradually improved upon that mark on each of his throws before his scoring throw, which was just an inch short of his season-best. For his efforts, Dykstra won eight points for the Kentucky men’s team.
 
Texas A&M’s Sam Humphreys won the event with a facility-record mark 78.36m/257’1”. Humphreys was U.S. Olympic Trials Javelin Champion in 2012.
 
Rebecca Famurewa picked up six points for the UK women’s team with a third place discus throw that went 51.95m/170’5”. Famurewa has scored in the SEC Championship both indoors and outdoors in this her freshman season. She was eighth in the weigh throw indoors.
 
Luis Orta and MacKay Wilson combined to score eight points in the 3,000-meter steeplechase with respective times of 8:56.34 and 9:08.77. Orta’s fourth-place time was .02 seconds off his season best. Wilson, a freshman, picked up his first two SEC points by finishing sixth.
 
Isiah Kent notched a point for UK in the shot put with an eighth place throw that went 17.54m/57'6.5". The junior has scored at all three of the SEC Outdoor meets he’s competed at.
 
Six Wildcats qualified into running event finals, which will take place on Sunday, through their preliminary performances on Saturday.
 
Entering the Saturday prelims UK’s Matt Hillenbrand, Keffri Neal and Adam Kahleifeh ranked second third and eighth respectively in the conference at 1,500M.
 
All three reached the 1,500M final. Hillenbrand won his qualifying heat with a time of 3:53.08, Keffri Neal was fourth in that heat crossing the finish line in 3:53.96 to earn an automatic bid into the final. Competing in first preliminary heat, Adam Kahleifeh ran 3:51.30 to make the final as the top non-automatic qualifier.
 
Neal will also run in Sunday’s 800-meter final.
 
Allison Peare will also run both the 1,500 and 800-meter final after her personal-best 1,500M time of 4:25.00 was good for second-place in her prelim.
 
Keith Hayes made the 110-meter hurdles final as he took second in his prelim with the third-fastest prelim time 13.78. Hayes also qualified for the 400-meter hurdles final.
 
Kayla Parker was the No. 5 qualifier into the 100-meter hurdles final as she crossed the line in 13.35 with a +3.2 wind.
