UTSA women conclude season at NCAA Championships Preliminary Rounds
AUSTiN — The UTSA women's track & field team concluded their season at this weekend's NCAA Championships Preliminary Rounds.
Leading the way was Ernestine Cray, who advanced to the triple jump quarterfinals on Saturday. The junior from the Alamo City skipped to a measurement of 41-8 ¾ (12.72m) in the opening round and she entered the quarters in 12th place. However, Cray was unable to improve upon that mark in her next three attempts and she finished in 14th place, which was just two spots short of a berth in the national semifinals in Eugene, Ore.
Eboni Johnson also competed in the triple jump during the meet's final day. The Western Athletic Conference Champion broke the sand in 38-2 ¼ (11.64m) and that was was good for 47th place.
Meanwhile, Zaquita McClanahan recorded a toss of 47-7 (14.50m) in the shot put on Saturday and her career drew to a close with her 39th-place performance.
On Friday night, Whitney Flannel cleared 5-5 (1.65m) in the high jump on her second attempt at the opening height, but she was unable to move on when the bar was raised two inches. That landed her in a 39th-place tie in the field of 48 jumpers.
The Roadrunners' other competitor at the meet was Alyssa Diaz and she raced to 38:10.04 in the 10,000 meters on Thursday night, which placed her 44th.
