Louisville’s D’Ana McCarty has won the women’s weight throw for the first individual title at the NCAA indoor track and field championships.

McCarty’s toss of 74 feet, 8 1/4 inches gave her a second straight indoor national title in the event.

Also Friday, Oregon’s Ashton Eaton took a commanding lead in the heptathlon after four events. Eaton, the defending champion, has 3,561 points. The difference between Eaton and second-place R.J. McGinnis of Minnesota is 361 points, which is bigger than the gap between McGinnis and 16th place.

Oregon is trying to defend its men’s team title from a year ago and is also considered a contender on the women’s side.
