Through just two weeks of outdoor competition, BYU boasts five field athletes ranked in the top-10 nationally for their respective events.
High jumper Cierra Tidwell Allphin cleared a nation-leading 1.85m/6-0.75 at the Aztec Invitational on March 25. The junior’s new personal-best places her in firm NCAA Regional qualifying position ahead of jumpers from Jacksonville, Penn State and Arizona.
The Cougars’ javelin throwers are already making their mark on the young season as well. After not competing in 2022, Cameron Bates returned to the field for BYU on March 18 at the Cardinal Classic and jumped atop the national leaderboard with a throw of 74.90m/245-9. LSU’s Tzuriel Pedigo (74.54m/244-7) and Navy’s Braden Presser (73.08m/239-9) fill out the top-3.
Defending women’s javelin champion Ashton Riner-Lunt ranks 10th nationally after a Cardinal Classic throw of 52.89m/173-6.
While winter’s grip has thus far prevented BYU’s pole vaulters from practicing outdoors, Caleb Witsken and Cailee Faulkner have picked up right where they left off during indoor season. Witsken cleared 5.45m/17-10.5 in San Diego and now ranks No. 5 nationally, ahead of Texas Tech’s Logan Fraley and just shy of South Alabama’s Kyle Rademeyer. Faulkner’s first vault of the season was enough to tie for seventh nationally with Washington’s Sara Borton.
