LOUISVILLE, Ky. -
On the opening day of the NCAA Mideast Regional Championships, Ohio’s Kari Summers took 10th place in the 5,000 meter run with a time of 16:45.00 at the University of Louisville’s Cardinal Park. While the top-five earned automatic bids, her top-12 finish leaves her eligible for at-large consideration for a berth in the NCAA Outdoor Championships taking place in two weeks.
Also competing Friday was Emily Amendola in the hammer throw, who qualified with a school-record heave of 186 feet, four inches earlier this season. She turned in a toss of 165 feet, four inches to finish 25th in her second-straight Regional appearance in the hammer.
Saturday will see the three remaining Bobcats in action, beginning with Susan Plungis in the javelin throw, followed by Cathy Udeani in the high jump and Bahiyjaui Allen in the shot put.
