GREENSBORO, N.C.—Sophomore Shanique Walker finished third in her 100m hurdle heat Saturday night at the NCAA East Regional to advance to the 2013 NCAA Outdoor Championships. She will join teammates Bienna Freeman and Joane Pierre as the three Dolphins to qualify for the meet.
Fresh off of her MVP performance at the A-Sun Championships, Walker finished third in her heat with a time of 13.26 to automatically qualify for the finals. The top three finishers in each of the three heats along with the next three fastest times qualified for the next round.
With Walker advancing to join Freeman and Pierre in the finals, the Dolphins set a program record having three athletes qualify for individual events.
The Championships are set for June 5-9 in Eugene, Ore.
