BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – In his first indoor championship meet appearance, senior sprinter Dom Nda (Pittsfield, Mass.) qualified for the finals in the 60-meter dash Friday afternoon.
With his time of 6.90 (6.894) seconds, the Pittsfield native recorded the 8th fastest time in the qualifying round. Nda will compete against the top-7 sprinters in Division III tomorrow at 3:35 p.m. He will look to become the first male sprinter in UMass Boston history to earn All-American honors, as well as compete for the program's first-ever National Championship in the 60.
It marked the first time in Nda's career that he competed at the indoor championship meet, and first Beacon in over 20 years. He also became the first Beacon since Rob Grieco won the shot put at the 1998 championship meet.
