Grayce Selig ’11 will be traveling to Capital University in Columbus, Ohio to compete in the mile-run event at the 2011 National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division III championships.

Selig is currently ranked fifth in the nation in the mile run. Earlier this season, she set a Brandeis-record of 4:54.82, her best time of the year on Jan 28 at Boston University’s Terrier Classic.

Earlier this year, Selig placed second in the mile run at the 2011 UAA championships and finished third at the New England Division III meet. Selig’s first event, the mile-run preliminaries is set for 5:30 p.m. on Friday. For those who qualify, the finals are scheduled for 4:45 p.m. on Saturday.

This will be Selig’s fourth trip to a NCAA championship meet and chance at a third All-American honor. During the 2009-10 season she competed at the Division II cross country championships as well as in the indoor and outdoor track and field championships. Her previous All-American honors are a third-place finish in the distance-medley relay indoors and a fourth-place run in the 1,500-meters outdoors event last year.
