DELAWARE, Ohio—Puget Sound sprinter Allanah Whitehall closed out the Loggers' track and field season Friday at the NCAA Championships in Delaware, Ohio, breaking her own school record in the 100 meter dash.
Whitehall ran the preliminaries of the 100m dash in 12.14, besting the school record by eight-hundredths of a second and the Loggers' top mark by one one-hundredth of a second. She finished 15th in the three-heat event and less than two-tenths of a second away from qualifying for the event's final.
The record caps off an outstanding second year for Whitehall. She captured four Northwest Conference titles in 2014, winning the 100 and 200 meter dashes and helping the Loggers' 4x100 and 4x400 meter relays finish first as well. During the NWC Championship meet, Whitehall set or helped set four school records and five total fastest times in Logger history. She set the school record of 12.22 in the 100 meter dash preliminaries on April 25, then ran 12.15 in the finals on April 26. A wind reading of over 2.0 miles per hour prevented her time of 12.15 from being a record, but it was still considered the school's top mark until Whitehall eclipsed that Friday.
