JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) - A Red Wolf wrapped up another stellar season in the 2022 NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championships.

Bennett Pascoe finished 12th in the 3000m steeplechase at the NCAA Outdoor Championship in Oregon Friday night. He earns second-team All-American honors after finishing with a time of 9:02.51.

Eastern Kentucky’s Ahmed Jaziri won the event with an 8:18.70 time.

Pascoe made it to the finals after finishing 5th in Heat 2 of the 3000m steeplechase in 8:34.93, a personal best for the Conway native.

Arkansas State track & field has had at least one athlete qualify for an NCAA Championship in 12 straight seasons. The streak started in 2011 with All-American pole vaulter Stephanie Foreman. Sharika Nelvis, Jaylen Bacon, Roelf Pienaar, and Carter Shell are some of the other names that have reached the NCAA stage. Pascoe made back-to-back appearances in the men’s steeplechase.
