Knights Set For NCAA East Prelims in Jacksonville

Championships Central Live Results Thursday Stream

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Tomorrow evening, 14 Knights will begin their quest for All-America status as day two of the NCAA East Preliminary Track and Field Championships marks the first round for some of the top athletes in the country, all looking to be among the final 12 that advance onto the National Championships in Austin, Texas from June 7-10.

Hosted at the Jax Track at Hodges Stadium, the east preliminary will occur alongside the west preliminary in Sacramento, California. With two women's and two men's rounds, UCF will get underway on Thursday as the Knights will compete alongside the top-48 athletes in each event. Following the two rounds, 12 will qualify from each region to make up the 24-athlete semifinal field at the National Championships. 

For the second consecutive season, the Knights have qualified 14 athletes into the first round, with four taking part in field events and 10 competing in track events. For an in-depth look at the Knights competing, click here.

UCF will return to the University of North Florida for the second time this season, as the squad saw multiple record-breaking performances at the East Coast Relays last month, headlined by Rayniah Jones setting a new program record in the 100-meter hurdles with her time of 12.63. Jones, alongside Kaylor Harris and Alicia Coleman, is set to begin her quest for her seventh All-American honor as the first round gets underway with the event at 6 pm.

Both rounds will be streamed on ESPN+, with coverage getting underway at 6 pm ET on Thursday and 5 pm ET on Saturday. Live stats will also be available.
