AZUSA, Calif. -- Hannah Kellerman began the day for the Lady Mustangs, opening up the meet in the preliminary of the women’s 1500m run. Running tactically to qualify for Saturday’s final, Kellerman cruised to an easy finish, advancing to the final based on time. Kellerman is excited to chase down All-GSAC honors on Saturday.
Teammate Ayla Draper also advanced to Saturday’s final of the women’s 400m hurdles. Looking sharp and smooth, Draper plans to earn All-GSAC honors of her own in Saturday’s final.
Completing the day for the women’s squad was Katrina Graham in the women’s 10,000m run. Battling illness, Graham put together a tough race, finishing seventh overall with a time of 39:46. Though not the time Graham was hoping for, TMC Coach Zach Schroeder commented, “Katrina put together two sub-40 minute 10k’s this year. She’s had phenomenal progression, and we’re excited to see what she does this fall.”
Saturday, Kellerman and Draper will compete in their respective finals.
- Friday’s start to the 2012 Golden State Athletic Conference Track & Field Championships was the final GSAC championship for Fresno Pacific Point Loma Nazarene, and the championships' host, Azusa Pacific. All three institutions will move to NCAA Division II status next year.
