Thompson Places 15th in 100m Prelims at 2019 NCAA Division II Outdoor National Championship Meet


KINGSVILLE, TX – Winston-Salem State University junior Cierra Thompson gave a great effort when she placed 15th in the preliminaries of the 100m dash at the 2019 NCAA Division II Outdoor Track & Field National Championship Meet, Thursday evening. She ran an 11.77 to earn a 15th place finish in the event.

Thompson's time was one of her top times of the season. However, it was not enough to qualify her for the finals of the women's 100m dash, Saturday.  Her top time of the season came when she ran an 11.64 at the Mount Olive First Chance & Multi.

Her finish completes the season for Thompson, but the Rams' 4x400m relay team will take the track tomorrow evening when they take part in the preliminary round of the 4x400m relay at 8:50 p.m.
