Another day down. Great job by Steph to advance to tomorrow's 400H. Rose Waller finished her career today as a Ute. What a career it was!— Utah T&F / XC (@Utah_trackfield) June 28, 2014
Mergaert finished 15th in the 1500m and missed making Sunday's final by 1.19 seconds. The Utah All-American in cross country, indoor and outdoor track, runs professionally for Oiselle and her time of 4:12.25 was a new personal best.
