Eight Gamecocks to Compete at NCAA Indoor Championships

COLUMBIA, S.C. – The University of South Carolina track and field program will send a total of eight student-athletes in five events to the 2021 NCAA Indoor Championships in Fayetteville, Ark., from March 11-13, the NCAA announced late Tuesday night. 
Medical scratches can be applied until next Tuesday, but South Carolina will have at least these eight Gamecocks represent at the indoor national meet.

Leading the way is the South Carolina women’s 4x400m relay team that will enter indoor nationals with the seventh-best time of 3:31.86 that the squad posted at the SEC Championships last weekend. The qualified team that ran in Fayetteville last weekend was Knowledge Omovoh, Ashton Lindley, Rachel Glenn and Stephanie Davis. Carolina is allowed two alternates on relay teams and that will be freshman Alysia Johnson and sophomore Angel Frank. For Davis, it is her third-straight trip to the NCAA Indoor Championships as a member of the 4x400m relay and for Omovoh it is her second-straight trip but will be the first time she competes after last year’s championships was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. For Frank, along with freshmen Lindley, Glenn and Johnson, it will be their first experience at the national level. 

The next highest qualified competitors for Carolina are Filip Demsar and Evan Miller who will both make their national debuts next weekend. Miller’s 20.87 personal record he set last weekend at the SEC Championships was good enough for him to sneak into the field as the No. 15 ranked time. Demsar matches Miller’s qualified position in the 60m hurdles, giving the sophomore his first shot on the big stage. Demsar’s time of 7.80 was posted numerous times throughout his indoor season and now he’ll have one last shot at dropping that to vie for a finals position next weekend. 

Individually on the women’s side it was senior Destinee Rocker and freshman Rachel Glenn who both qualified for the national meet in their respective events. Rocker, who is in her second season with the Gamecocks, posted a personal record of 8.13 earlier this season and her second and third best times were enough to break a tie between other competitors on the national list to get her into the field. She will attempt to become the first Gamecock to earn All-America honors in the event since Kierre Beckles in 2013. For Glenn, she matched her personal record of 1.80m at her first SEC Championships to finish fifth and also had that mark matched in the season opening meet earlier this year. 
Competition runs in Fayetteville from March 11-13, and fans will be able to watch on the ESPN family of networks.
