A total of three Springfield College student-athletes -- two women and one man -- competed on the final day of the NCAA's.
On the women's side, Brague, a junior from Smithfield, R.I., and Curtis, a senior from Princeton, N.J., had to wait to Saturday, the third day of three at the NCAA's, to compete in the javelin. Brague's toss of 137-feet, 5-inches was a season-best. She had entered the NCAA's with the 22nd-best qualifying mark of 22 competitors, but managed to finish 10th of that group. She missed an eighth-place finish by one foot. The top eight finishers become All-Americans.
Meanwhile, Curtis finished 17th with a toss of 130-feet, 8-inches in the same event. Curtis had finished fifth in the heptathlon in two grueling days of competition in that event the two previous days. Curtis did become an All-American in the heptathlon, scoring four team points.
Springfield scored those four points to place in a tie for 55th of 80 scoring teams at the NCAA's.
On the men's side, SC grad student Brian Fuller (Ludlow, Mass.) finished third in the 3000-meter steeplechase on the last day of competition at the NCAA's.
