EUGENE, Ore. – Sophomore Jade Miller advanced to the finals on Saturday in the 400 meter hurdles at the 2015 NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships with a top-eight qualifying time in the semifinals. Miller was one of four Harvard student-athletes in action Thursday at Hayward Field in Eugene, Oregon.

Miller and junior Autumne Franklin both raced in the third heat of the 400 meter hurdles. Clocking in with a time of 56.82, Miller posted the fourth-fastest time of the 24 competitors and the top mark of non-automatic qualifiers to clinch her spot in Saturday's final slated for 6:30 p.m. EST on ESPN2. Franklin narrowly missed making the finals, finishing 10th overall at 57.21 to garner second team All-America accolades.

In the throws, sophomore Nikki Okwelogu just missed earning second team All-America honors, finishing 17th with a long throw of 52-1.75 (15.89 meters). In the javelin, senior Hannah Mayer posted a long distance of 148-11 (45.41 meters) to finish 21st.
