EUGENE, Ore. – The Baylor men’s 4x400-meter relay team advanced to the finals to highlight day one Wednesday at the 2021 NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championships at Hayward Field.

Hasani Barr, Dillon Bedell, Ryan Croson and Howard Fields III teamed to run a time of 3:04.95 to take the final qualifying spot and move on to Friday’s final. Fields III clocked an anchor split of 45.75, the third-best split among the anchors, to help the Bears advance.

“It was a good ending to the day,” Harbour said. “Trey was a little disappointed in the 400, but he came back in a big way on that relay. Those guys were just a little over a half a second out of second, and yet just barely made it in. I’m proud of those guys. They battled, and we live to fight another day. They can do some great things come the final.”

Earlier in the evening, Fields III placed 16th in the 400 meters with a time of 46.70. He and Kamden Jackson, who placed 20th in the 100 meters, concluded their individual event seasons in the national semifinals.

“I’m proud of Kam,” Harbour said. “He’s had a great year. He’s a fighter, he’s young, and he’s got a lot of great running ahead of him. I’m proud of the seasons he’s had.”

The women’s team takes the stage on Thursday with running event semifinals and field event finals (pole vault and long jump).

The championships are being televised live on ESPN2/ESPNU/ESPN3, and live results can be found at https://dt8v5llb2dwhs.cloudfront.net/Outdoor/2021/index.htm.
