Morris Wins Discus National Championship

In his last event as a collegiate athlete, Jacob Morris won the national championship in the men’s discus throw at the 2024 NCAA Division II Track and Field Championships, May 24.
On his second throw, Morris took the lead with a measurement of 57.75 meters (189-5 feet). That mark would stand up through the final round of flight two and then the final three rounds of the finals.
Morris becomes the first Bulldogs men’s thrower to win a national championship, the seventh individual to win a title, 10th overall champion in the program’s history and first since James Walton won the long jump in 2004.

The three-time Great Lakes Valley Conference discus champion and two-time outdoor conference field athlete of the year was making his third trip to the outdoor championships. His previous best finish was fourth in 2022.
