ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (GopherSports.com) – Jon Lehman kicked off the 2014 NCAA Men's Indoor Track & Field Championships for the Minnesota men’s indoor track & field program with a 10th-place showing in the weight throw.

The Gopher captain cleared 20.90 meters (68-07 ft.) for the day as the first of three Gophers competing at the NCAA championships this weekend.

Lehman closed out his indoor career with an impressive performance for the 2014 season. A native of Coon Rapids, Minn., Lehman set the school record in the weight throw earlier this year at the Snowshoe Open with his throw of 22.98 meters (75-05 ft.).

The senior captain for the Gophers has four individual wins this season - the Snowshoe Open, the Bill Bergan Invitational, the Iowa State Classic and the Northwest Open.

The Second Team All-Big Ten honoree finished second in the weight throw at the conference meet earlier this month with a toss of 22.68 meters (74-05 ft.) and will compete at the NCAA Indoor Track & Field Championships this weekend in Albuquerque, N.M. 

The Gophers continue to compete at the NCAA championships on Saturday. Zach Siegmeier is set to go in the pole vault at 6:30 p.m. CT while John Simons will run the 3,000 meters at 8:40 p.m. CT.
