LA CROSSE, Wis. – Ade Ayoola's All-American finish in the women's high jump highlighted Day 2 of the 2018 NCAA Division III Outdoor Track & Field Championships held at Roger Harring Stadium.
Ayoola, a senior competing in her third NCAA outdoor national meet, cleared a height of 1.68 meters on her second try to tie for eighth place overall and earn her first All-American honor of her career. The height was also her best of the 2018 outdoor season.
On the track, junior Nicole VacaGuzman raced to her best time of the year – and re-broke her own school record – with a time of 55.45 seconds in the 400 meter prelims. She placed second in her heat and eighth overall to earn a spot in Saturday's finals, set for 3:25 p.m. CT.
Thursday, senior Khia Kurtenbach competed in the 10,000 meters but was unable to finish due to extreme temperatures. She'll compete again in Saturday's 5,000 meters race, which is set for 1:20 p.m. CT.
Joining Kurtenbach and VacaGuzman in Saturday's competition is UChicago senior Nathan Downey, who will compete in the finals of the men's pole vault starting at 12 p.m. CT.
