Bishop 13th in Heptathlon, Scalesse Wins 110M Hurdle Heat
DELAWARE, Ohio-Senior Abby Bishop finished strong in the women's heptathlon and classmate Adam Scalesse won his heat in the 110 meter hurdles to lead Coast Guard on Day Two of the NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships, hosted by Ohio Wesleyan University.
Coming into day two of the heptathlon in 18th place, Bishop would shine in the second and final day of competition, storming ahead five spots to claim a 13th place finish in the field. She jumped 5.18 meters in the long jump, threw 28.12 meters in the javelin, and ran a time of 2:21.50 in the 800 meter run to score a total of 4,515 points. The 4,515 points scored by Bishop was just off her school record of 4,538 points set two weeks ago.
Scalesse entered the NCAA Championships as the number one overall seed in the 110 meter hurdles and he did not disappoint, winning his heat with a time of 14.21 seconds to secure automatic qualification into tomorrow's event final. In addition to winning his heat, Scalesse's time was good enough for the third-fastest run in qualification on the day.
Scalesse and junior Beth Gollin (3,000 meter steeplechase) will wrap up the NCAA Championships and the 2014 season in their respective events tomorrow afternoon.
