Track & field finishes up NCAA East Preliminary Round action
The JU track & field team had a narrow miss on Saturday as the Dolphins completed the final day of the NCAA East Preliminary Round in Greensboro, N.C.
The Dolphins missed qualifying for the NCAA Championships in the 4x100-meter relay after juniors Danielle Davenport, Louise Kiernan and Unique Singleton and freshman Charlene Charles ran a time for 45.28 for 16th. Due to an injury, JU decided not to compete in the 4x400-meter relay later this evening.
“This was a tough meet this weekend,” said JU head coach Ron Grigg. “The good thing is that everyone competing today will return. We will be back and better next season.”
Charles will continue her season on June 9th as she represents the Dolphins in the heptathlon at the NCAA Championships in Eugene, Ore.
