How Farley got here

Farley turned in an impressive indoor season campaign, earning a spot in the championships in the 400-meter dash. She earned the 17th spot in the event with a seed time of 56.88 seconds. Farley's top time this season, which is also the school and a personal record, came just last weekend at the Eastern College Athletic Conference championships on March 3, when she ran a time of 57.11 seconds to claim the victory in the event.

Last time out

Farley last competed in the ECAC championships in New York on March 2-3. She turned in an impressive weekend earning a first-place finish in the 400-meter dash while also capturing a second-place finish in the 200-meter dash. Farley posted new school records in both events, posting a mark of 57.11 in the 400 and a time of 25.51 in the 200-meter.

Record breaker

No school record has been safe this season, as Farley has been on a mission since the calendar turned to 2018. She currently owns three school records while also posting a new mark for the Capital Athletic Conference in the 400-meter, breaking the CAC indoor meet record and the CAC championship record. Farley has broken the school 200-meter record twice this season while breaking the 400-meter record three times and the 500-meter record once.

Up next

Farley will run in the preliminary round of the 400-meter dash on the afternoon of Friday, March 9 at 4:25 p.m. (Eastern time). If she advances to the finals she will run on Saturday, March 10 at 4:25 p.m. (Eastern time).
