Tech sprints to NCAA meet
Kim Francis was speechless.
She had a good reason to be that way, too.
On Saturday, the sensational sophomore hurdler for Louisiana Tech University clocked 13.4 to finish No. 12 in the 100-meter high event at the NCAA’s annual East Preliminaries in Jacksonville, Fla.
A day after having registered a personal best of 13.23 in the first round of that event, Francis wound up in the top dozen and earned a berth in the NCAA’s outdoor championship meet set for Des Moines, Iowa., June 6-9.
