Gabby Gaudreault Complete Results

La Crosse, Wisc. - May 24, 2013 - In the second day of the 2013 NCAA Division III Outdoor Track and Field Championships, both Laurie Jenkins and Gabriella Gaudreault competed in the prelims of the 100 and 800 meter races.

Gaudreault, who previously competed for the first time in her career on the national stage at the NCAA Indoor Championships this winter, qualified for Saturday's 800 meter championship with a gritty performance.

Nearly halfway through the race, she became tangled with another runner and almost fell, putting her in the back of the pack. However, with 300 meters left in the race, the junior from Leominster, Mass. sprinted to the front of the group and would finish second in her heat with a time of 2:12.14.

Gaudreault finished with the ninth-fastest time overall and can become an All-America on Saturday by placing in the top eight. She entered the weekend as the highest-seeded competitor for the Pride, as she was ranked 12th in the 800 meters with a qualifying time of 2:11.19.

In the 100 meter race, which was comprised of a field of 22 runners, Jenkins finished with the 16th-fastest time after crossing the finish line in 12.28. The Columbia, Conn. native had previously registered a time of 12.13 to make the national field.
