Benedictine's Kimyenna Abron was unable to advance out of her preliminary heat in the 200 meter dash at the NCAA Division III Outdoor Track and Field Championships at Oshkosh, Wis., on Thursday evening. Abron will make her final attempt to earn an All-America award by competing in the 100 meter prelims tonight. In Thursday's 200 meter race, Abron posted a time of 25.06, which was the fourth-best in the second of four heats of that event. Her time was 14th fastest, overall, out of the 26 competitors (only the top nine advanced to Saturday's finals).
