Carnagie Garners All-American Status in Day One of NCAA Championships

GENEVA, Ohio - Adrian College women's track and field sophomore Britney Carnagie earned All-American status in the javelin throw with a sixth-place finish in day one of the 2019 NCAA Division III Outdoor Track and Field Championships on Thursday, May 23. Carnagie is one of seven Bulldogs competing at the Spire Institute this weekend and was the first to have the finals in her event and earn All-American status and team points.

Carnagie entered the championships as the 18 seed, narrowly qualifying in her second-to-last competition. She had her biggest throw of the season at the championships, launching the javelin 138'2" to take home sixth-place. This was also only her fifth time throwing this season, as she spent the majority of the outdoor season recovering from a broken collarbone injury she sustained at the second meet of the indoor season. Carnagie also made it to the NCAA Championships in the javelin throw a year ago, finishing in 18th place meaning this is the first All-American award of her career. Her three team points puts Adrian's women's team on the board in a tie for 21st place and with Carnagie being the only competitor on the women's side, three points will be the team total.

Also in action for AC on Thursday was the 4x100 relay team and senior Randy Fry in the 200-meter. Both advanced to the finals, with the relay team coming in as the fifth seed and Fry finishing in eighth place. The finals for those events will be ran on Saturday, with the relay taking place at 12:15 p.m. and the 200-meter at 2:50.

The Bulldogs will compete in three events tomorrow, starting with sophomores Nicholas Jackson and Daz Lawrence in the high jump at 2 p.m. Shortly after that starts, senior Jordan Davis and sophomore Denzel Tinsley will run in the 110-meter hurdles preliminaries. Tomorrow's final event with a member of the Black and Gold is the 100-meter preliminary, where Fry will look to qualify for his second solo event and third overall.
