University of Colorado at Colorado Springs runner Sarah Shepard qualified to compete at the NCAA National Indoor Track and Field Championships.

The national championships will be held on March 9-10 at Boston.

Shepard recorded a time of 17 minutes, 25.42 seconds in the 5,000-meter run at Seattle on Feb. 10, earning a provisional qualifying time. The university learned Friday that the time had held up and Shepard was Boston-bound.

Shepard is the only UCCS athlete to qualify this year. Several others, including Aaron Rubalcaba-Lopez, Jenna Dorsey-Spitz and Storm Allen were on the bubble.

Shepard is scheduled to run on Saturday, March 10, at 5:48 p.m. EST.
