Her teammate freshman Kaylyn Hall placed sixth with a time of 13.84.  Freshman Katarina Vlahovic and sophomore Emily Coghill were kept out of the top nine in the preliminaries and did not advance to the finals.

The next event was the women’s 1500-meter race. This event ran in seven different sections. In section six, junior Gwynne Wright finished in sixth place with a time of 4:28.21. Shortly after in the fourth section, her senior teammate Erinn Stenman-Fahey placed second in 4:24.98.
