COLLEGE STATION – Fields for the NCAA Outdoor Championships were announced on Thursday and Texas A&M will have 45 athletes competing in 31 events during the NCAA West preliminary rounds at Mike A. Myers Stadium in Austin. The meet begins next Thursday and concludes on Saturday.

The Aggies total 58 entries in the meet, split evenly among the men and women with 29 entries each. Two of the entries for the women include Jena Hemann and Annie Kunz, who are already qualified for the heptathlon during the NCAA Championship weekend in Eugene, Oregon.

Texas A&M men will have 24 athletes among 29 entries in 16 events while the Aggie women have 21 athletes among 29 entries in 15 events.

Top 10 seeded entrants in the NCAA West preliminary for the A&M men include: Sam Humphreys (1st – Javelin), Henry Lelei (1st – Steeplechase, 10th – 5000m); 4x100 relay (1st); 4x400 relay (1st); Ameer Webb (2nd – 200, 3rd – 100); Deon Lendore (2nd – 400); Wayne Davis (3rd – 110 hurdles); Dalton Rowan (4th – Discus); Devin Bogert (6th – Javelin); Hector Hernandez (7th – 800); James Bonn (8th – 800); and Gregory Coleman (9th – 400 hurdles).

For the Aggie women top 10 seeded entrants in the NCAA West preliminary include: Kamaria Brown (1st – 200); 4x100 relay (1st); Shelbi Vaughan (2nd – Discus); LaQue Moen-Davis (3rd – Triple jump, 5th – Long jump); Ashley Collier (3rd – 100); 4x400 relay (3rd); Ashton Purvis (4th – 100; 6th – 200); Jennifer Madu (5th – 100, 7th – Triple jump); Donique’ Flemings (5th – 100 hurdles); and Olivia Ekponé (6th – 100, 9th – 200).

Track & Field News updated their NCAA Outdoor form charts this week and the magazine favors the Texas A&M men for the team title with the Aggie women predicted to finish third in a tight team race.

The T&F News form chart predicts the A&M men will win five events with Henry Lelei in the steeplechase, Wayne Davis II in the 110 hurdles, Sam Humphreys in the javelin as well as both relay events. With a prediction of the Aggie men scoring 67 points the magazine thinks that will give them a 15-point cushion over Florida (52), Arkansas (51) and Oregon (51).

In the women’s team chase Track & Field News tabs Kansas a one-point favorite over host Oregon, 58-57, with A&M in the hunt at 54 points. The magazine predicts the Aggie 4x100 relay will win while runner-up finishes are predicted for Kamaria Brown in the 200, Shelbi Vaughan in the discus and the 4x400 relay.
