COLLEGE PARK, Md.
- The Frostburg State track and field teams competed in the Maryland Terrapin Invitational, which consisted of 27 teams competing from all three NCAA Divisions, as well as highly touted JUCO schools, Saturday afternoon.
On the men’s side, nine athletes represented FSU, while junior Jessica Clingan (Williamsport, Md./Williamsport) and sophomore Sumer Rohrs (Frostburg, Md./Forest) participated for the women.
Rohrs was second in the 100-meter hurdle, crossing the finish line in 14.52 seconds. Her time is an NCAA National Championships provisional qualifying time and it’s just 0.12 seconds off of the NCAA Championships automatic qualifying time of 14.40 seconds.
