Pitt senior sprinter Brycen Spratling placed fourth in the finals of the men's 400 meter race at the NCAA Division I Track and Field Outdoor Championships in Eugene Oregon on Friday.

His time of 45.59 earned him all-American first team honors for the third time in his college career. He also earned first team all-American honors in the NCAA Indoor Championships in the men's 400 meter and the 4 x 400 meter relay.

He was voted the Mid-Atlantic Region Outdoor Track Athlete of the Year by the U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Association earlier this week. He has won first place in all but one 400 meter race this outdoor season.

Spratling's top performances include: 60m- 6.89, 100M- 10.73, 200M- 21.01, 300M- 33.19, 400M- 45.71, 500M- 1:00.37, and 800M- 1:53.14. He earned second-team all-American status last season and was the Big East Champion in the 500 meter dash with a time of 1:00.37. It was an NCAA record and the world's third-fastest time in the history of the event.

Spratling transferred to Pitt from Eastern Michigan after his freshman year where he was the two-time MAC Champion in the 400M dash. He is an Administration of Justice Major. He will also be competing in the USA Track and Field Championships on June 26-29.
