Fast Finish

Xavier’s track and field team blazed past 15 school records during the Atlantic 10 Conference outdoor track and field championships—the most ever in one meet—and then sent three performers to NCAA Championships regional competition.

  • Caitlin Thomas qualified with a 10:44.72 in the 3,000 meter steeplechase.
  • Senior Luke Beuerlein became the first Xavier male to go to regionals with a 9:04.68 in the 3,000 meter steeplechase.
  • And junior April Phillips became Xavier’s first-ever A-10 Champion with a shot put of 47 feet, 4 ½ inches. The put also made Phillips the only Xavier athlete to qualify for NCAA competition in two sports. She’s also on the women’s basketball team.
