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.

Pitt's four other track and field performers that reached the Championships also came up empty for titles. Spratling was the only one to reach the finals in his/her event.
