Luscier Finishes Fourth Overall in 60 Meter Dash at NCAA Division III Championships

Naperville, Ill. - March 11, 2017 - Competing at the NCAA Division III Indoor Track and Field Championships for the second-consecutive season, Springfield College's Courtney Luscier (Pittsfield, Mass.) registered a season-best time of 7.70 seconds in the 60 meter dash, placing her fourth overall on Saturday afternoon.

Luscier, who has now picked up her second all-america honor in as many years, registered the seventh-fastest time in the 60 meter dash prelims on Friday, clocking in a 7.71 seconds. Returning to the track on Satuday, the junior defeated Emily Reichenberger of Wisconsin-Whitewater, Ajai Brooks of Denison, Chelsea Johnson of Methodist and Daijana Johnson of Mount Union to take fourth in the event. 

Luscier becomes the 28th student-athlete in the history of the Springfield College women's indoor track and field program to earn all-america status, but the first to ever earn all-america recognition in the 60 meter dash. No stranger to the national stage, last season, the Pittsfield, Mass. native posted a school record-breaking time of 7.67 in prelims and a 7.69 in the finals to take seventh overall in the event.
