Yale freshman Cara Kiernan (Vienna, Va.) will participate in the NCAA Championships in the 3,000-meter run after receving an at-large bid Monday. The at-large selections are made by the championship committee from the descending order lists. The top five at each of the four regionals held last week received an automatic invitation to the NCAAs.
Kiernan, who was 23rd at the East Regional, will run in the preliminaries Wednesday June 9 at 9:35 PM. The finals are on Saturday June 12 at 8:55 PM. Yale has one other athlete participating, as Lucas Meyer earned an automatic bid in the 3,000-meter steeplechase for his performance at the East Regional last weekend.
The Championships are hosted by the University of Texas June 9-12 at Mike A. Myers Stadium in Austin.
