Women's Track and Field Concludes Season at NCAA East Regional
May 25, 2012
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Sophomore Lauren Allam (Pasadena, Md.) placed 43rd in the discus at the NCAA East Regional Championship at North Florida's Hodges Stadium on Friday afternoon. Allam was the third and final Navy athlete to compete in the regional meet.
Allam posted an opening mark of 130-10 (39.89m), but fouled on her final two attempts to finish in 43rd place. The top 12 finishers in the event will advance to the NCAA Championship.
This was the second straight season that Allam participated in the NCAA East Regional. She placed 37th in the discus last season.
The trio's participation in the NCAA Regional capped off another successful season for Navy, as the Mids swept Army in indoor and outdoor track for the fourth straight season and won the 2012 Patriot League Outdoor Championship.
