Evan Jager qualifies for steeplechase final at U.S. outdoor championships

Algonquin native and 2007 Jacobs High School graduate Evan Jager won his preliminary race in the 3,000-meter steeplechase Friday to advance to Sunday's final at the 2014 USA Track and Field Outdoor Championships in Sacramento, California.       

Jager, running for Nike/Bowerman Track Club, won his heat in 8:34.45 with Donald Cabral finishing second in 8:34.77. The top five in each heat, plus the next four best times advanced to Sunday's final.          

Jager had the best qualifying time from both heats, with Cabral second. Jager, who finished sixth in the steeplechase at the 2012 London Olympics, is looking to defend his title from last year, where he ran a finals time of 8:20.67.
