EUGENE, Ore. -- Washington State’s Jeshua Anderson ran the fastest time in the men’s 400m hurdles semifinals Wednesday during the first day of the NCAA Track & Field Championships being held at Hayward Field in Eugene.
Anderson, a junior from Woodland Hills, Calif., cruised to win the second heat of the 400m hurdles semifinals in a time of 49.21 seconds. The two-time defending NCAA intermediate hurdles champion will race for his third consecutive title Friday night at 5:05 p.m.
Anderson told Paul Merca (paulmerca.blogspot.com) after the race, “I’m happy with my performance. I tried to cruise through. I have been working on alternating my lead leg. Today I ran 13 strides through 9 hurdles. I exerted a little more energy than I wanted to. It worked out and now I have a day to rest.”
