ALBUQUERQUE -- Junior Saluki thrower Sophia Lozano finished 13th in the weight throw at the NCAA Indoor Championships on Friday night, earning her a second-team All-American certificate.
Lozano's third and final throw of 20.01m (65-07.75) was her best of the day, but fell nearly two and one-half feet shy of making it to finals. Her finish ends a remarkable indoor season capped by a dramatic entry into the national meet. Lozano took the final qualifying spot by one centimeter with her Missouri Valley Conference weight throw winning heave of 20.89m (68-06.50).
