PORTLAND, Ore. – Two finals qualifiers and two personal records highlighted the third day of competition for North Dakota on Friday at the 2013 Big Sky Conference Outdoor Track and Field Championship.

Teammates Kirsten Haas (Sr., Belgrade, Mont.) and Anne Van Heel (Forest Lake, Minn.) each qualified for Saturday’s finals in the 400-meter hurdles after placing third and seventh, respectively, during today’s prelims. Haas clocked a time of 1 minute, 1.71 seconds, while Van Heel ran the race in 1:03.86.
