JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Jarrett Samuels will have company on the flight to Oregon. Two days after Samuels punched his ticket to Eugene and the NCAA Championships, Charla Craddock followed suit with a personal record time and the sixth-fastest 200m time in school history as action concluded at the NCAA East Preliminary Championships at Hodges Stadium in Jacksonville Saturday evening.

Craddock's time of 23.27 ranks sixth in school history and is the fastest 200m time ran by a Lady Techster in five years. Competing in the NCAA Preliminary Championships in the 200m for the first time in her career, she now advances to the NCAA Championships in Eugene, Oregon in June. She finished 11th overall after entering the week ranked 19th in the East.

The 200m was the top highlight of an otherwise busy day for the Farmersville, Texas native. Craddock started the day running the anchor leg of the 4x100m relay that finished 19th with a time of 44.81 as she was joined by Victoria Wade, Brittany Walker and Mia Adams in the relay.

Craddock capped the day off with her third event of the day and fourth event of the prelims as she joined Diamond Every, Wade and Adams on the 4x400m relay that ran 3:46.06 to place 24th.

With her advancing mark in the 200m, Craddock joins Jarrett Samuels in advancing to the NCAA Championships on June 10-13 at historic Heyward Field in Eugene, Oregon. The entire NCAA Championship meet will be broadcast by the ESPN Family of Networks.
