INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. - Junior sprinter Candyce DeLoatch (Pittsgrove, N.J.) represents Maryland today in the 400 meters event at the NCAA Women's Indoor Championships, held at the RCA Dome in Indianapolis. DeLoatch, qualified as the ninth-fastest American in the event, runs her trials event at 4:35 this afternoon.

The top eight finishers qualify for the NCAA Finals in the 400 meters, to be run on Saturday. The top eight American runners earn All-American credentials.

DeLoatch, who finished third in the ACC Championships in February, qualified for the NCAAs with a school-record time of 54.17 during the ACC meet at Blacksburg, Va. That time beat her previous best indoor performance of 56.46 at last years ACC Indoor meet.

DeLoatch is Maryland's outdoor record-holder in the 400 meters, also, with a 53.87 time at last year's George Mason Invitational.
