Tibor Vegh finished fourth in the steeplechase to advance to the NCAA Championships for the second straight season with a 8:52.31.
John Martinez, who was ranked ninth nationally in the steeplechase heading into the regional, finished seventh to just miss making the national meet as an automatic qualifier. He will now go into a pool and should make the NCAA Championships as an at-large selection.
