Olivia Coopwood kicked off the 2018 NCAA East Preliminary meet for VCU, placing 38th among 47 total competitors. The senior did not qualify for finals, which brings her season to an end.
Coopwood ran a 59.99, breaking the one-minute mark for the second time in her career. The first came during the finals of the Atlantic 10 Conference Championships, when her 59.53 earned her the gold.
The Fredericksburg, Va. native found success in the 400 hurdles throughout the spring season as she recorded a top-six finish in three of the four meets she ran it. Coopwood also sits atop the 2018 Atlantic 10 performance list for the event.
Though this was her first year at VCU after transferring from Coastal Carolina, Coopwood was a part of two Atlantic 10 Conference Championship titles with the Rams.
The second day of the NCAA East Preliminary meet continues tomorrow. Camora Sanders will compete in the women's discus, which is scheduled for 1:15 P.M.
