GENEVA, Ohio – Emery Bradlina set a personal record on the national stage, but the sophomore fell just short of qualifying for the 800-m finals in the NCAA D-III Outdoor Track & Field Championships at the SPIRE Institute on Friday.
Bradlina finished the 800-m preliminaries in 2:11.43, topping her previous personal best of 2:11.88. The sophomore fell just 0.05 seconds shy of qualifying for the 800-m finals. Her finish during Friday's preliminaries ranks third on Puget Sound's all-time list.
The future remains bright for the sophomore from Boulder, Colorado. Bradlina opened the outdoor season by placing third in the 800-m during the Ed Boitano Invitational (March 4), and she placed second in the event during both the Shotwell Invitational (April 1) and the Northwest Conference Championships (April 21-22). In between then, she won the 800-m during the Pacific Luau Invitational (April 15).
