LEXINGTON, Ky. – Western Michigan track and field's Jordan Anderson and Lindsey Hufnagel both just fell shy of qualifying for the quarterfinals at the NCAA East Regional Preliminary Championships at the University of Kentucky on Thursday.
Hufnagel came the closest, finishing just two spots outside of the qualifying zone in 26th. The senior ran a time of 59.98 seconds, taking fourth in her heat. It was the fifth time on the season that Hufnagel broke the 60 second mark in the race.
Anderson ran a time of 2:11.94 seconds, just over two seconds shy of the final qualifying spot.
