Devin Clark takes seventh in NCAA 3,000 steeplechase

Devin Clark, an Arkansas senior from Smithson Valley, finished seventh on Saturday in the 3,000-meter steeplechase at the NCAA Track and Field Championships.

Clark was timed in 9 minutes and 55.22 seconds.

Allie Ostrander of Boise State won the race and set a facility record with a time of 9:37.23 on a hot afternoon.

The meet is in its last day and its final session. It’s being held in Austin, at Myers Stadium, on the University of Texas campus.

Clark is also on the start list for the 5,000 meters.

In 2014-15, her senior year of high school, Clark capped a record-setting career at Smithson Valley by winning state championship in cross country and by taking silver medals for second place in both the 1,600- and 3,200-meters in track.

Earlier Saturday, Ashtin Zamzow, a UT senior from Goliad, took the lead in the heptathlon with 5,416 points with one event remaining.

Tyra Gittens, a Texas A&M sophomore, has totaled 5,356 points.

Zamzow erased a 254-point deficit with a heave of 162 feet and 7 inches to win the javelin.
