Shanahan is Slated to Race Saturday at 8:05pm CST at the Mike Myers Stadium
Austin, TX. - A bid to advance to the NCAA Championships begins Saturday for LMU Lion Danielle Shanahan. She heads to Mike Myers Stadium at the University of Texas for the 2017 NCAA Division I Outdoor Track & Field West Preliminary.
Shanahan will hit the track competing in the 5,000m at 8:05pm Central Standard Time. The senior enters her fourth straight NCAA bid in the 5,000m run.
This marks the fifth consecutive year, and 11th overall in the 12 years of sponsoring women’s track (and since the re-establishment of the men’s program), that the Lions have advanced athletes into the postseason.
The Men's and Women's Division I Outdoor Track and Field preliminary competitions are scheduled for May 25 - 27. University of Texas in Austin, Texas will host the west preliminary, which Shanahan is competing in. The east preliminary will be held at the University of Kentucky in Lexington, Kentucky. The qualifiers out of these two regions will compete in the NCAA Division I Men’s and Women’s Outdoor Track and Field Championships which will be held June 7-10 in Eugene, Oregon.
