Eugene, OR - Cal State Fullerton junior Ciara Short placed tenth in the semifinals of the women's 400 meter race Wednesday and did not advance to Friday's finals at the NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships at the University of Oregon.
Short finished fourth in one of three heats in a time of 53.75. Only the top two finishers in each heat and the next best two times advanced to the finals. Short ran 52.78 at Regionals last week, a time that would have qualified her at Eugene.
Short's season is not over as she will likely compete in the USA National Championships later in the month.
