Former University of Wyoming thrower Mason Finley will throw the discus at this weekend’s U.S. Track and Field Outdoor National Championships in Sacramento, CA.

Finley will compete Friday at 4:15 p.m., Mountain Time. The meet is being held at Sacramento State’s Hornet Stadium.

This year he is ranked seventh among an 18-man field going into the competition. He placed 12th at the same event last year.

Last week Finley was selected the Mountain West’s Outdoor Track & Field Student-Athlete of the Year. He earned 11 All-America honors during his collegiate career. Finley finished sixth in the discus at the NCAA Championships earlier this month.
