NWMSU’s Shaw misses out on 60-meter finals at NCAA Championships

riggertNorthwestIt wasn’t the finish he had envisioned at his final indoor competition at Northwest Missouri State, as senior Tyler Shaw missed advancing to the finals in the 60-meter hurdles Friday.

Shaw, who claimed a runner-up finish in 2009, a sixth place finish in 2010 and a fourth place finish in 2011, narrowly missed the cut off at the 2013 NCAA Indoor Track and Field National Championships. The St. Louis native finished 14th with a time of 8.14.

Moussa Dembele of St. Augustine’s earned the top time to advance to Saturday’s finals at 7.84. Two MIAA individuals also advanced to the finals, Emporia State’s Andrew Etheridge and University of Lincoln’s Sabiel Anderson with identical times of 7.96.

Shaw and the Bearcat track and field teams will now turn their attention to the outdoor season. Northwest opens competition March 14 at the Emporia State Spring Twilight.
