COLLEGE PARK, Md. - Sophomore Thea LaFond and senior Moriah Young will compete in the 2013 NCAA Women's Outdoor Track & Field Championships June 5-8 in Eugene, Ore.

LaFond will participate in both the triple jump and the high jump. The Silver Spring, Md., native cleared 5-11.25 on her first attempt at the NCAA East Regionals to punch a ticket to the NCAA Championships. Her triple jump mark of 42-01.25 also landed her a trip to Oregon.

The triple jump is slated for Friday at 6:25 p.m. and the high jump will take place Saturday at 3:45 p.m.

Young will end her Maryland career at the national championships Saturday when she competes in the shot put at 4 p.m. Young's shot put throw of 52-03.75 at the NCAA East Regionals registered the best of any Terp this season and beat her own record as the second-best distance in Maryland outdoor track & field history.
