Track And Field: Garrison LeRock Finishes Fifth at Canadian Nationals

OU sophomore-to-be Garrison LeRock, competing unattached for Alberta, finished fifth in the high jump Saturday afternoon at the 2014 Canadian Junior National Championships in Sainte-Thérèse, Quebec.

LeRock cleared 6-6.25 on his first attempt after passing on the first five heights in the competition. He then missed three chances at 6-8.25.

LeRock had established his collegiate best with a 6-11 to finish fifth at the Big 12 Championships in mid May. His final OU competition during the 2014 season was at the NCAA Prelims when he cleared 6-7.5.

Another OU sophomore-to-be, Hayden McClain, will compete in the triple jump on Sunday at the US Junior Nationals. That meet, which is a qualifier for the IAAF World Junior Championships, is being held in Eugene, Ore.

McClain posted a legal collegiate best of 50-11.5 at the NCAA Prelims. That came after a wind aided 51-11.75 at the Big 12 Championships. His Big 12 mark was good for second place while his NCAA mark just barely missed qualifying for the NCAA Championships.

A top two finish and a legal mark of at least 51-2.25 will qualify McClain for the Junior World meet in Eugene July 22-27.
