AUSTIN, Texas - The Long Beach State track & field team wrapped up action at the NCAA West Preliminaries Saturday at Mike A. Myers Stadium.

Junior Davon Wilson-Angel narrowly missed out on qualifying for the NCAA Championships in the 110-meter hurdles. With the top-three in each heat earning an automatic berth into the championships, Wilson-Angel came in fourth, just .005 seconds behind the third-place finisher. He was also 14th overall, clocking in with a lifetime-best 13.89 seconds, which ranks third in school history.

Meghan Foley was unable to advance to the NCAA Championships after finishing 10th in her heat and 21st overall in the 1500-meter quarterfinals (4:33.09). Foley, a junior transfer from Orange Coast College, closes out a stellar first year at Long Beach State as she established a school-record 4:23.55 earlier in the season.

Sophomore Emily Cooper also placed 20th in the 200m quarterfinals with a time of 23.98 seconds, and redshirt freshman Chris Enriquez was 32nd in the 5000m (14:37.29). Both topped their pre-meet rankings as Cooper was 46th and Enriquez was 48th entering the weekend.

In the field events, senior Michael Vaughan (47-05.75, 39th) and freshman Willie Alexander (44-01.5, 44th) did not qualify in the triple jump.

Junior Joel Baez was also 43rd in the men's hammer throw with a toss of 173-07.

Willie Alexander, who qualified in the long jump on Thursday, will be competing at the NCAA Outdoor Championships in Eugene, Ore., June 5-8.
