Austin, Texas - Lauren Williams came up three places shy of qualifying for nationals in the 100 meter hurdles and neither Ciara Short in the 200 nor the women's 4x100 relay team could gain the top 12 Saturday on the final day of the 2010 NCAA West Region Track & Field Championships at the University of Texas.
Williams clocked 13.53 and it took 13.37 to finish 12th. Short, who qualified Friday for the national 400 finals, was a half second slower in her 200 than in the quarterfinals, clocking 24.11 to finish 19th. The relay team had a poor final exchange of the baton and placed 18th in 45.66.
Short will compete in the 400 in Eugene, Oregon, beginning June 9.
