Despite a valiant effort, Amy Cashin's Mountaineer career has come to a close in the NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championships.

Cashin finished 19th among 24 runners with a time of 10:11.86 in the 3,000 meter steeplechase.

“Amy has had a wonderful year,” said WVU head coach Sean Cleary. “Another big step in her career by advancing to the NCAA Finals. My belief is that Amy will leave this meet with an even greater determination to be standing on the podium next year. A school record, an NCAA finalist and an All-American award. We will build off of this and emerge better for it.”

West Virginia is not finished at historic Hayward Field in Eugene, Ore., as Shamoya McNeil will compete in the triple jump on Saturday. The event will air at 6:40 p.m. on ESPN.
