FitzSimons was eighth in the 100 with a time of 11.02, earning him 856.
Boise State senior Kurt Felix leads the competition with 4,187.
The decathlon will conclude today with the 110 hurdles, discus, pole vault, javelin and 1,500 meters.
New Haven’s Cas Loxsom, a junior at Penn State, failed to qualify for the finals in the men’s 800 meters.
The former Wilbur Cross star finished third in his preliminary heat with a time of 1:46.85.
The top two finishers in each heat advance to the final.
If Loxsom were in the third heat, he would have posted the winning time and advanced to Friday’s final.
Loxsom has qualified for the U.S. Olympic trials in the 800 later this month.
