University of Portland freshman Trevor Dunbar of Kodiak got his first experience of NCAA Track and Field Championships, and it may have left him with a sour taste.

Considered by many to be one the country’s most promising underclassmen, Dunbar finished 18th overall in the men’s 5,000 meters with a time of 13:53.17.

He was ninth in his heat while battling against a slow pace set by the field.

Dunbar ran with a tattoo of the state of Alaska on the right side of his thigh.
