Missouri freshman sprinter Markesh Woodson earned a 10th-place finish in the men's 100 meters at the NCAA track and field championships in Eugene, Ore.
Woodson set a new personal best of 10.12 seconds to finish fifth in the third heat of Wednesday's preliminaries, which saw winner Charles Silmon of TCU run a 9.92 time. Woodson's time was 0.04 seconds short of qualifying for Friday's finals where Silmon will face off against Florida State's Dentarius Locke, who ran a 9.97 in the first heat of Wednesday's prelims.
Missouri senior long jumper Malcolm Pennix ended his Tigers career with an 18th-place finish in the men's long jump with a mark of 24 feet, 6.5 inches in Thursday's competition. LSU's Damar Forbes won the event at 27-4.75.
