Cal Poly’s Sean Davidson finished 15th in the men’s 10,000 meters, running in 29 minutes, 43.73 seconds at the NCAA West Regional in Fayetteville, Ark., on Thursday.

Davidson missed qualifying for the NCAA championships by three seconds, and teammate Chris Frias placed 30th (30:40.75).

Jamison Jordan placed 33rd (10.64 seconds) in the men’s prelims of the 100, and Ashley Windsor finished 32nd (2:10.14) in the women’s 800 prelims.
