Alguire Qualifies for Fourth Straight NCAA Championship

Senior Gabrielle Alguire has earned a fourth consecutive invitation to the NCAA Division III Outdoor Track and Field Championships as announced by the NCAA Saturday morning.


Alguire is the top qualifier in the country in the javelin as she had a season-best throw of 47.35 meters (155' 4") at the Jim Taylor Invitational meet to start the season. At the time, the throw was the best in the country by 15 feet and stood as the best throw in the nation for the entire year.

Alguire was the Landmark Conference champion in the javelin and was also named the Landmark Field Athlete of the Year.

The NCAA Championships will be held in Geneva, Ohio and hosted by the University of Mount Union beginning Thursday and run through Saturday. The javelin competition is scheduled for Thursday afternoon.
