BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – David Elliott ran a 4:07.59 in the semifinal of the men’s mile at the NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships Friday evening in Birmingham, Ala., taking fourth place in his heat and guaranteeing himself a spot in the final tomorrow afternoon. The redshirt senior’s time ending up being fourth overall in what were two tactically run heats.

Freshman Allie Ostrander competed in the women’s 5,000m and was unable to finish, stepping off the track at the two-mile mark. Notre Dame’s Molly Seidel won the race in 15:15.21, giving her the third-fastest time in NCAA history.

Elliott will be among 10 competitors tomorrow battling in the final for the men’s mile title. The race will start at 3 p.m. (MT) and it will be televised on ESPN3. Elliott will also be competing in the men’s 3,000m at 5:10 p.m. (MT), and Ostrander is unlikely to compete in the women’s 3,000m at 5:25 p.m. (MT).
