DURHAM, NC — Day three of the NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships came to a close Friday, June 2 and Tonya Carter posted another strong performance. The senior from Douglasville, GA placed second in her heat, and fourth overall, with a time of 11.32 in the women’s 100m dash. That mark qualified her for Saturday’s finals.
Carter is the NCAA’s reigning women’s 60m dash champion and she is chasing her second individual NCAA title this year. Carter is looking to become the first Seminole to accomplish this feat in 15 years. In 1985, Lady Seminole Michelle Finn won two NCAA titles in the 55m and 100m dashes. That same year, Esmeralda Garcia won NCAA Indoor and Outdoor Titles in the triple jump.
Carter will compete in the women’s 100m dash finals Saturday, June 3rd. The event is scheduled to take place at 7:15 p.m. at Wallace Wade Stadium on the campus of Duke University.
