GULF SHORES, ALA. (May 25, 2019) - Our Lady of the Lake University Track and Field's Miki Romain competed on day two of the 39th Annual Women's Outdoor Track and Field Championships at the Mickey Miller Blackwell Stadium in Gulf Shores, Ala.
Romain became only the second woman at OLLU to qualify for nationals in outdoor track and field last year, and the first to make two consecutive trips. She also was the first-ever female to advance to the nationals in indoor - something she has done two years in a row, as well.
Head Coach Stephen Sherman said, "Coach Terry Smith and I are obviously proud of Miki. She operated with such consistency this year qualifying in indoor and outdoor off of her first crack at each respective event. I know Miki was really going after an All-American finish, and I genuinely thought that it was a possibility. That being said, to be the 17th ranked anything in the entire NAIA is something that should not be taken for granted. What's more is this was Miki's first spring that she made running sub-15 seconds routine, so I know next year can be even more special."
She led the Saints to a runners-up finish in the Red River Athletic Conference track and field championship to earn a spot in this year's nationals in the 100m hurdles.
This year, she placed 17th out of a group of 32 in the 100m hurdles.
