COLLEGE STATION, Texas – Junior sprinter Gabby Thomas set a school and Ivy League record with a 22.66 performance in the 200 meters in her preliminary heat to move on to the event final at the NCAA Division I Indoor Track and Field Championships hosted by Texas A&M at Gilliam Indoor Track Stadium.
Thomas had the fastest qualifying time and will race in the 200m final at NCAA Indoors for the second consecutive year, the first Ivy League sprinter to accomplish that feat.
Earlier in the day, Thomas placed 12th (sixth in heat 1) of the 60-meter dash, finishing in 7.26 – just off her personal best in the event. Thomas earned USTFCCCA Second Team All-America honors.
Junior Myles Marshall competed in the 800-meters, making his NCAA Championship debut. Marshall also finished 12th in the event, narrowly missing out on the final with his 1:48.58 performance. Marshall is Harvard's first men's USTFCCCA All-American since 2014, earning Second-Team All-America honors.
Thomas will compete in the 200-meter final tomorrow at 7 p.m. (ET). The race will be streamed live on ESPN3.
