Nda Competes In The 100-Meter Dash At NCAA Championship

LA CROSSE, Wis. – In his final individual event of his college career, All-American Dom Nda (Pittsfield, Mass.) competed in the prelims of the 100-meter dash Friday evening on the campus of UW-La Crosse.

THE BASICS

Men's – No Team Score Through Day 2

HOW IT HAPPENED

Nda, who has been one of the most consistent sprinters in program history finished Friday's preliminary round with a time of 10.98 seconds, which was good enough for 13th place.  The Pittsfield native missed out on the finals by .06 seconds. 

Despite not qualifying for the finals of the 100, Nda will be back in action tomorrow in the finals of the 4x100-meter relay.  The Pittsfield native and his teammates will look to become the first relay team to ever earn All-America honors at the Outdoor National Championship.

As one of the most decorated male sprinters in UMB track and field history, Nda was supposed to compete in the prelims approximately three hours earlier.  However, right as he was about to step onto the track, the championship meet came to a screeching halt because of lightning.  After the long break, the sprinters returned to the track, as he looked to become a two-time All-American.

WHAT'S NEXT

The men's 4x1 will be in action tomorrow at 1:05 pm (EST) as they look to win the program's first-ever national championship in a relay event.
