TCU’s Charles Silmon will be the top seed from the West Region in the 100 meters at the NCAA Championships in two weeks in Eugene, Ore.

The senior posted the top qualifying mark in the 100 of 10.03 seconds, the second-best time in the NCAA this year during Friday’s rain-delayed NCAA West Preliminaries in Austin. Friday’s events didn’t finish until after 1 a.m. Saturday.

Silmon also positioned himself well in the 200 late Friday night. He cruised to 20.59 to win in his heat after 11 p.m. He entered the meet ranked No. 5 in the NCAA in the 200 with his 20.33 at the Big 12 Championships.

TCU’s Megan Smith also earned an NCAA berth in the discus with the second-best mark of her career at 167 feet, 5 inches. Her final throw of the finals came at 10:42 p.m., after a 10-hour, 6-minute wait between throws.

UTA track and field

UT Arlington’s Bozidar Antunovic and Ashly Wright advanced to the NCAA Championships at the NCAA West Preliminaries.

Antunovic placed fourth in the shot put with a throw of 62 feet, 1 1/4 inches, good for one of 12 qualifying spots and just one inch shy of his school record.

Wright finished 12th in the 800 in 2:06.04 to earn a trip to Eugene next month. Her time was a personal record and the second-fastest time in UTA history.


• Oklahoma 8, Texas A&M 0: Top-seeded Oklahoma earned a berth in the Women’s College World Series for the third consecutive year. Senior Keilani Ricketts threw her 16th shutout of the season and sophomore Shelby Pendley belted two home runs to lead the Sooners (52-4) over 16th-seeded Texas A&M (42-18) in five innings.

• Texas 3, Florida State 2: The Longhorns rallied from a 2-0 deficit with one run in the fourth, fifth and sixth innings in Game 1 of their rain-delayed NCAA Super Regional Series. Game 2 is scheduled for 2 p.m. today. Game 3 will follow, if necessary.


• Notre Dame football: A Notre Dame spokesman says quarterback Everett Golson is no longer enrolled at the school. Golson led the Fighting Irish to the national championship during his sophomore season. Spokesman Dennis Brown said he couldn’t comment on why because of federal privacy laws.

• Miami football: Player Dyron Dye is standing behind claims he made in his affidavit that an NCAA investigator threatened his eligibility in a 2011 interview. Dye’s attorney, Darren Heitner, said that his client will meet with the NCAA again in the coming days with hopes of playing this fall.
