EUGENE, Ore. – The 2021 track and field season came to an end for the University of Arizona Wildcats on Saturday at the final day of the NCAA Championships.
Lenox High graduate Shannon Meisberger had the highlighting performance, finishing as the national runner-up in the 400m hurdles.
Meisberger entered the meet with the sixth fastest 400mH time in the NCAA at 56.61. She went on to break her PR, clocking a time of 55.70 to place second and give her the fourth-fastest time in school history. Her performance also meets the qualifying standard for the Olympic Trials.
"I am so impressed with Shannon," Arizona head coach Fred Harvey said. "She's put in the work all year long and has 100% believed in the system and in herself. She was able to make the in-race adjustments needed in order to excel."
The Arizona women's team finished 30th overall with a team score of 10, matching the men's side's finish from Friday.
Next up, a handful of Wildcats will travel back to Eugene, Ore. for the 2021 U.S. Olympic Trials from June 18-21 and 24-27.
