Magness repeats as women’s 5000m winner on final day of the B1G Championships

Osika finishes as women’s 1500m runner-up as six Spartans reach podium

Another Big Ten title by Jenna Magness on Saturday afternoon capped off the Michigan State track and field team's performance on the final day of the 2022 Big Ten Outdoor Championships at the University of Minnesota Track & Field Stadium.
Repeating as the women's 5000m champion two days after claiming the 10,000m crown on Friday night, Magness was one of six Spartans to reach the podium on the final day. Joining Magness with medal-winning performances were Katie Osika and John Petruno, as Osika earned silver in the women's 1500m and Petruno took home bronze in the men's 1500m finals for the second-straight season.
In the team scoring, the MSU women took eighth place at 49 points, while the Spartan men placed 10th at 38 points.
Dylan Terryberry got the Spartans started on Sunday in the men's javelin throw by qualifying for the finals with a 58.14m personal-best throw on his third try, but he was unable to top that mark in his final three attempts to finish just off the podium in ninth place. In the men's high jump, Tylor Leedom cleared the 1.95m and 2.00m bars on his second attempt each time but went 0-for-3 at 2.05m to miss the podium.
The men's pole vault started out well for MSU, as Michael Davenport cleared the first two bars, but could not fault over the 5.15m bar in three tries. For Trevor Stephenson, he vaulted 5.25m on his first attempt at the height, but was unable to clear the 5.35m mark in three vaults and ended up in fifth place to earn the Spartan men four points.
