Patterson Finishes Just Shy of Qualifying for NCAAs

Devon Patterson

TAMPA, FL - The NCAA East Preliminaries concluded on Saturday with Devon Patterson competing in the men's shot put. Patterson closed out his season placing 16th of the 48 competitors, narrowly missing out on punching his ticket to Eugene in the top-12.  

Patterson was seeded 23rd going into the meet and moved up to 16th - a great improvement and certainly a strong effort for the UB junior. His toss of 60'3" was only one foot shy of qualifying for the NCAAs.
