Auston Papay threw consistently in Wednesday's discus preliminary round at the NCAA Championships.
Unfortunately, one good throw is what gets you to the finals. And the Zips' junior never got it.
He finished 15th with his best toss being 55.56 meters. The top 12 advanced to the finals. No. 12 finisher Jason Rider of UCLA threw 56.26 meters.
He will compete in the shot put preliminaries today. You can check the meet's results at this site.
Papay's shot put bid is Akron's last chance at an All-American this season.
