Carnevale, who got into the national meet as the 15th and last qualifier, posted the seventh-fastest qualifying time yesterday, a school-record 8.85, to advance to the final.

In the final, Carnevale crossed the finish line in 8.95 seconds, a hundredth of a second ahead of the eighth-place finisher.

Carnevale is only the second indoor All-American in Muhlenberg women’s track and field history, and the first junior to accomplish the feat. Alex Faust was the other, placing sixth in the pole vault in her senior season of 2010.
