Gibson Represents Army on Third Day at NCAA East Prelim
Jamir Gibson was the sole representative of the Army West Point Track & Field team on the third day of the NCAA East Region Prelim, as he competed in the discus on Friday May 28.
Gibson's best throw came on his last attempt, a 55.70m toss that put him 13th in the 47-member field. The mark was just 0.75m off of overtaking Virginia's Jacob Lemmon for a qualifying spot that would have seen the cow join teammate August Cook (javelin) at the NCAA Championship.
The discus was the second event that Gibson competed in the week, as he additionally represented the Black Knights in shot put competition earlier. On that day, Gibson recorded his own third-best performance all-time (17.85m) en route to finishing sixth in his flight.
