Richard Garrett Jr. finished his final collegiate indoor season with a fourth place finish in the shot-put at the NCAA Championships.
The result equals UTSA's best ever finish at a national championship set by Teddy Williams in the 60m in 2010.
With his fifth throw of the competition Garrett recorded a distance of 63-11 (19.48m) to secure fourth spot in the event.
Garrett narrowly missed out on the podium, missing by under two inches as Danny Block of Wisconsin won the bronze with a put of 65-7 1/2 (20.00m).
Jordan Clarke (Arizona State) defended his title with a put of 67-3 1/4 (20.50m) while Kole Weldon (Texas Tech) finished second, just edging Block with 65-8 (20.02m).
"I'm extremely proud of what Richard was able to accomplish today," said UTSA track and field head coach Aaron Fox in a statement. "We've only had one other athlete finish that high at a national meet and Richard had a chance to beat that going into the final round. He had a tremendous season and truly is deserving of being an All-American."
Garrett won't have time to rest as the outdoor season commences in just two weeks as UTSA head to San Marcos.
