Eugene, Ore. – The 2017 campaign to an end on Friday night at Hayward Field for the Ohio State men’s track and field team with a 33rd-place showing (eight team points) at the NCAA Championships. The Buckeyes received six points from Nick Demaline’s third-place finish in the shot put on Wednesday night, and then the 4x400m relay pitched in two points this evening with a seventh-place finish.
