NAPERVILLE, Ill. – Angela Morrison came up three points shy in her quest to become an All-American in indoor track & field.
Competing in the indoor pentathlon in the NCAA Division III Indoor Track & Field Championships, the senior from Westland, Mich., finished 10th with 3,283 points. She needed 3,286 to move ahead of Sylviann Momont, a first-year athlete from the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point who finished eighth.
Morrison started by achieving personal records in the 60-meter hurdles (9.22 seconds) and high jump (5' 1 ¾"). She was still in eighth place after soaring 29' 2" in the long jump and throwing the shot put 16' 2 ¼". She finished the day with a run of 2:27.87 in the 800.
"I'm very pleased with her performance and I'm positive it will be a great spring board to a great outdoor season," Head Coach Lance Coleman said. "Angela has performed at as high a level as I have seen in the past seven seasons. She always competes great, but today she did it against the best women in the country and she hung with them."
