49ers send 3 to NCAA Track Finals

On the final day of the NCAA East Regional track and field championships in Greensboro, Lamarra Currie, Aja Jackson and Darius Law each picked up automatic berths to the NCAA Championships with top five finishes in the finals.

Law’s finish in the 400 meter dash snapped his own school record in the event. Charlotte’s three automatic qualifiers are the most in program history.

Senior Lamarra Currie qualified for two events - the 100 meter dash and 200 meter dash. Senior Aja Jackson qualified for the 800 meter run and sophomore Darius Law qualified for the 400 meter dash.

Charlotte’s NCAA qualifiers will be back in action June 10-13 when they travel to Arkansas for the NCAA Championships.
