Pitt sprinter Brycen Spratling didn't achieve his ultimate goal of winning the 400 meter race in the NCAA's Outdoor track and field championships. However, a fourth-place finish still earned him First Team NCAA All-American status to cap off a tremendous season for the senior.
Overall, Spratling ran a 45.49 finishing behind Deon Lendore (Texas A&M / 45.02), Mike Berry (Oregon / 45.07), and Vernon Norwood (LSU / 45.45).
The Panthers' athletic department website also has a post-race interview with Spratling.
In addition to Spratling's outstanding outdoor season in track and field, he was also a First-Team All-American on the Indoor circuit in the 400 meter and the 4x400. Spratling's achievements also earned him the USTFCCCA's Mid-Atlantic Track & Field Performer of the Year for the Outdoor Season.
