Utah State’s Parker Bluth earns second-team All-American honors

EUGENE, Ore. – Utah State’s Parker Bluth placed 10th in the semifinals of the men’s 200-meter dash with a time of 20.70 at the NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Finals on Wednesday at historic Hayward Field.

By finishing in the top-16 of the event, the senior from Riverton, Utah, earned second-team All-American honors. Bluth advanced to his first Outdoor Finals by winning his heat in the 200m with a time of 20.73 at the West Preliminary Championships on May 28 in Lawrence, Kan.

Bluth also ran the first leg of the men’s 4x400m relay team that placed 12th (3:06.41) and earned second-team All-American accolades. He was joined on the team by sophomore Brady Martin, senior Cole Lambourne and junior AJ Boully.

Three other Aggies competed in individual events on Wednesday. Boully placed 20th in the 400m hurdles (52.67), sophomore Clay Lambourne finished 22nd in the semifinals of the 800m (1:52.31) and fellow sophomore Dillon Maggard took 23rd in the semifinals of the 1,500m (3:52.80). That trio all earned honorable mention All-American honors.

Senior thrower Maci Bingham will be the final individual to compete for Utah State as she will compete in the finals of the women’s hammer on Thursday at 3 p.m. (MT).
