University of Minnesota Duluth Women’s Track and Field athlete Haleigh Reindl has officially qualified for Saturday’s championship race in the 800-meter run.
Reindl grabbed second place in Friday’s second preliminary heat posting a time of (2:09.08) which in turn officially qualified her for Saturday’s 800-meter run championship. Reindl’s time of 2:09.08 also sets a PR as the fastest mark she has ever recorded in the 800-meter run.
“Haleigh executed her race perfectly today, and we are excited to do it all over again tomorrow” said Head Coach Laura Harmon.
Reindl will need to finish in the top eight out of nine runners in tomorrow’s championship race to grab All-American status for the first time in her Bulldog career, in the outdoor 800-meter run.
With a first place finish tomorrow, Reindl would become UMD’s third National Champion in NCAA II Outdoor Track and Field.
Tomorrow’s 800-meter run championship will go off at 5:45 PM CT.
