Minnesota Alumni NCAA Indoor Championship Results


As the 2024 NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships conclude, our eyes were on the talented Minnesota high school alumni who will be competing at the national level. These athletes, hailing from various high schools across the state, have proven themselves as some of the best in the nation.

With their skills honed on Minnesota's high school tracks, these alumni are ready to showcase their abilities on the collegiate stage. Their journey from high school to NCAA competition is a testament to their hard work, dedication, and the support of their communities.

Here we look at those talented athletes and how they fared at the NCAA Indoor Championships. 


Mya Lesnar (Colorado State University)

A 2020 graduate of Alexandria High School, Lesnar secured the first women's indoor national championship in Colorado State Track and Field history after recording a mark of 18.53 meters Saturday afternoon at the 2024 NCAA Indoor Championships. Her mark of 18.53 meters (60' 9.5"), was just a little over 2 inches better than the runner-up mark.

Isaac Basten (Drake University)

A veteran of the NCAA Championships, Basten competed in the men's mile, where he came into the meet with national title hopes after finishing 2nd last year. Basten ended up controversially finishing 13th in the prelims and finished with a time of 4:10.87 after being impeded and tripped with three laps to go. Basten felt as if he was clearly impeded but the NCAA ruled differently and his weekend was done in the prelims. 

Olivia Roberts (University of Wisconsin)

A 2018 graduate of Wayzata High School, Roberts competed in the women's weight throw where she finished 7th overall representing the University of Wisconsin. Roberts finished with a best throw of 71' 3.75" (21.71m), which was her in line with some of her best throws of the season. This was a big improvement for Roberts over last year when she finished 13th overall with a throw of 68' 8". 

Parker Feuerborn (Southeast Missouri State University)

A 2018 graduate of Saint Michale-Albertville High School, Feuerborn never qualified for the state meet in Minnesota, but the graduate student at Southeast Missouri State has built himself into one of the NCAAs best throwers. Feuerborn finished 6th in the men's weight throw with a throw of 74' 10" (22.81m) to finish just a foot out of the medals.

A former MIAC thrower for St. Thomas, Feuerborn has gone all the way from 18th at the 2019 MIAC Indoor Championships in the weight throw to being a two-time All-American for Southeast Missouri State this year and at last year's NCAA Outdoor Championships in the hammer throw (2nd place). 

Marcus Weaver (University of Arkansas)

A former NCAA Division III 4x national champion, Weaver transferred to the University of Arkansas and has become a player in the heptathlon/decathlon stage after making the leap. After finishing 21st at the 2023 NCAA Outdoor Championships in the decathlon, Weaver went into this season with something to prove and did just that finishing 8th at the 2024 NCAA Indoor Championships with 5,859 points. 

In racking up his 5,859 points, Weaver finished 4th in the shot put (50' 0.5"), 6th in the high jump (6' 6.75"), and 3rd in the 1000m (2:38.12).
