JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The sixth and final member of the Miami women’s track and field team concluded the weekend at the NCAA East Region Preliminary Meet on Saturday afternoon.
Sophomore Amelia Strickler got a mark on all three of her throws in the shot put at the competition. She ultimately finished 36th based off her second throw, which landed 48 7 1/2 from the circle. The mark is nearly a three foot improvement from her 39th-place toss at the preliminary meet that concluded her freshman campaign.
Of the six RedHawks’ qualifiers, Tori Paterra punched her ticket for the NCAA Outdoor Championships in the javelin. That meet is held June 11-14 in Eugene, Ore.
