Long Beach State Track and Field came out with a big statement Thursday, earning two spots in the National Championship meet on the very first day of the NCAA West Preliminaries.

Smith received the Big West Field Athlete of the Year award earlier this year, and proved to be one of the top athletes in the west.

Big West Freshman of the Year Shalee Reynolds moved on to the quarterfinals in the 400 meter hurdles, finishing in third place in her heat to be one of the 24 runners moving on to the second day of competition.

Long Beach will have four student-athletes returning to action Friday with, Josh Carr competing in his second event, the men’s discus, while CourtneDavis and Ashleigh Chambers will both run in the first round of the 200 meter dash.
