INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Concord University's Shawnee Carnett has been selected to compete in the 800-meter run at the 2013 NCAA Division II Women's Indoor Track & Field National Championships in Birmingham, Ala., the NCAA announced Tuesday.
Carnett will be looking for her second career national title; she won the 800-meter outdoor championship in 2011.
Tuesday's announcement was a mere formality for Carnett, who had assured herself of a spot at the National Championships when she ran an 800-meter automatic qualifying time of 2:08.51 at the Virginia Tech Challenge on Feb. 16.
Carnett's time, which was also a school-record, was the second-fastest 800-meter time in the nation this season. Only Helen Crofts of Simon Fraser had a quicker time than Carnett this year at 2:07.34.
The 800-meters prelims will be run 5:35 Friday March 8 with the championship being held on Saturday March 9 at 5:00 p.m.
