YOUNGSTOWN

Two-time All-American Chad Zallow will compete at the NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships in the 60-meter hurdles. The NCAA announced the qualifiers for the 2018 meet in College Station, Texas on Tuesday evening.

Zallow’s top time of 7.65 seconds in December ranks as the fourth-fastest qualifying effort entering the March 9 semifinals. The two races are set for 7:55 p.m. at Texas A&M’s Gilliam Indoor Stadium. The top two from each heat, and next four fastest times move on to the finals on March 10.

Last year in College Station, Zallow ran a time of 7.72 seconds to place third and earn first-team All-American accolades. As a freshman in 2016, he finished ninth and was a second-team All-American.

The top three qualifiers were Grant Holloway (Florida, 7.42 seconds), Reubin Walters (Alabama, 7.61) and Jaylan McConio (Illinois State, 7.64).
