BOCA RATON, Fla. -
Florida Atlantic University track and field's Jamika Glades earned her second FAU Player of the Week honor after claiming three top-five finishes at the Conference USA (C-USA) Outdoor Track & Field Championship last week.
In her first day of competition, Glades advanced to the finals in both her events. She finished second in the 400 meter prelims, just .14 behind the top finisher, in 59.35, and in the 100, she set an FAU personal best to come in fourth place, at 13.48.
On Sunday, Glades earned FAU eight points with a runner-up finish in the 400 meter hurdles, shaving 0.29 off her prelim time to 59.06. In the 100 hurdles, she was fourth, racing a 13.54 for five team points. She was also part of the 4x400 meter relay team that set a season low as the ninth-fastest time ever, 3:44.86 (in the order of Sherline Valentin, Berneta Boldin, Anne-Catherine Wasser and Glades) and placed fifth in the field for four points.
Prospective qualifiers for the NCAA East Regional meet will find out their fate on Monday when all of the times and distances are officially compiled and released. Those preliminaries are scheduled for May 25-27 in Lexington, Kentucky.
