Fitchburg State's Annie Woolley and Westfield State's Sabrina Pray finished in the top eight of the 100 meter hurdles to earn All-American honors on the final day of the NCAA Division III Outdoor Track and Field Championships.
Junior Woolley earned All-American honors at the 2017 NCAA Outdoor Track & Field National Championships after finishing fourth overall in the 100 meter hurdles with a personal best time of 14.13 seconds at the Spire Institute this afternoon.
Woolley entered the Outdoor Track & Field Championships ranked fifth in the nation in the 100 meter hurdles after claiming the 2017 MASCAC/New England Alliance Championship in the event with a new MASCAC/Alliance record time of 14.32 seconds, hosted by Westfield State University in late April to secure her spot.
Pray placed seventh in the nation in the women's 100 meter hurdles in a school-record time for her third-straight race, with a time of 14.42 seconds.
Pray entered the meet as the 22nd seed. She ended the season ranked 23rd on the performance list and made it into the 22-athlete NCAA field when one of the runners ahead of her elected not to compete in the event at the championship meet.
Joining the duo on the final day of the meet was Worcester State's Sam Weeks who was competing in his third event of the championship.
Earlier this week, Weeks finished sixth in the discus for All-American honors and just shy in the shot put with a ninth place finish. Today, he finished in 13th with a top hammer throw of 53.49m (175' 6").
