UKTF Women Qualify In Five Events For Saturday’s Finals
AUSTIN, Texas – Kentucky track and field concluded day two of the NCAA Championships with the women making their debut this evening. The Wildcats moved on in five events, including both relays, and will compete for a title Saturday evening.
The day started with the 4×100 meter relay where the team of Victoria Perrow, Anthaya Charlton, Masai Russell, and Karimah Davis tied the school record with a tantalizing time of 42.30 to win the heat and earn the automatic qualification for Saturday. The time was a season best and tied the school record held by Celera Barnes, Jasmine Camacho-Quinn, Kayelle Clarke, and Kianna Gray set in 2018. It was also the second fastest time of the semifinals.
Russell kept her record breaking season going after she qualified in both the 100-meter hurdles and the 400-meter hurdles. She won both heats in each event to earn the automatic qualifiers for Saturday.
Davis set a personal best in the 200 meters to qualify for Saturday’s final. Her time of 22.62 was the fifth fastest time in school history and the eighth fastest time this evening.
In the final event of the evening, the women’s 4×400 team of Davis, Megan Moss, Tamiia Fuller, and Dajour Miles finished 10th overall and third in the heat with a time of 3:29.95. The Wildcats earned the automatic qualification after the hosts were disqualified for flagrantly impeding another team and will run on Saturday.
