Seattle Pacific senior McKayla Fricker of Seattle Pacific, after a near-miss at the national indoor 800-meter title in March, won the outdoor title going away on Saturday at the NCAA Division II Track & Field Championships in Allendale, Mich.

Fricker’s time of 2 minutes, 6.18 seconds — a personal best by nearly three-quarters of a second— was more than a second ahead of runner- up Shawnee Carnett of Concord (W.V.). Carnett, who fended off a charging Fricker to win the indoor crown.

“It’s unreal. I just can’t believe it just happened,” Fricker said after winning her national title. “It’s what I’ve been determined to do ever since I set foot at SPU. ... To be able to do it like this is just surreal.”

Reichert had a career-best by well over two feet of 165-2 on her final attempt, moving from ninth place to second.

The one-two national finish was a school first.
