EUGENE, Ore. – The Gamecocks’ week at the 2014 NCAA Outdoor Championships at the University of Oregon’s historic Hayward Field came to and end on Saturday in front of 11,344 fans.

After an opening throw of 202’4″ (61.67m) in the men’s javelin, Kaleb Zuidema improved to 204’11” (62.47m) on his second heave. It would be his best of the day. The mark gave him a 21st place finish in his NCAA debut.

Zuidema will collect the All-America honor of his career for his efforts, earning an honorable mention nod. He ranks third in school history with his SEC bronze medal-winning throw of 229’2″ (69.87m).
