Carnett runs to new school record

CU runner qualifies for national indoor meet

BLACKSBURG, Va. — Shawnee Carnett of Concord University ensured herself of a spot at the NCAA Division II Indoor National Championships by running the 800 meters in an automatic qualifying time of 2:08.51 last weekend at the Virginia Tech Challenge in Blacksburg.

The time, a new school record, is currently the second fastest 800-meter mark in all of NCAA Division II. Carnett, already an NCAA national champion, finished more than two seconds ahead of her nearest competition Saturday.

Ashleigh Taylor broke her own school record when she cleared 1.60 meters in the high jump. Micalyn Miller qualified for the WVIAC Championships in the 800-meters with a personal-best time of 2:33.15.

Lydia Powell set a new PR in the 400-meter dash, completing the race in 1:00.18.

Before shifting their attentions to the outdoor season, Concord track and field athletes will have one more opportunity to qualify for the Indoor National Championships when CU heads to the Virginia Tech Last Chance Meet on March 2.
