JACKSONVILLE, FL - Iona College women's outdoor track freshman Regina Neumeyer finished 18th overall in the 3,000-meter steeplechase quarterfinal at the NCAA East Preliminary at the University of North Florida's Hodges Stadium.
Neumeyer was sixth overall in her heat, just under five seconds shy of the final semifinal qualifier. Her time of 10:17.75 set a new Iona freshman and overall record in the 3k steeple chase.
