Jesse Elvrom on Saturday became the first Sacramento State javelin thrower to advance to the NCAA Division I Outdoor Track and Field Championships, according to the school's athletics website.

Elvrom placed sixth at the NCAA West Region preliminary meet in Austin, Texas, with a top throw of 235 feet. The top 12 finishers reached the NCAA Championships, June 5-8 in Eugene, Ore.

UC Davis' Ashley Marshall, Lauren Wallace and Katie Fry also advanced to the NCAA Championships from the West Region meet, the school reported.

Marshall became the first Aggies female sprinter to advance to the Division I championships after finishing with the eighth-fastest time in the 100-meter dash, 11.70 seconds. Wallace had the second-fastest time in the 800, 2:04.05, and Fry posted a school-record 9:58.97 in the 3,000 steeplechase.

UC Davis' Ethan Ostrom tied his school record in the pole vault at 17-6 1/2. The mark put him in a four-way tie for the 12th and final qualifying spot, but he was eliminated because of misses and finished 15th.

The Aggies' women's 4x400 relay team of Cekarri Nixon, Tonie Williams, Shanie Landen and Wallace ran a school-record 3:37.56 and just missed advancing, finishing 13th.
