EUGENE, Ore. — Two-time Big West Conference track Athlete of the Year Ashley Marshall finished last in the third of three 100-meter heats — 21st overall — as her brilliant UC Davis junior season came to a close at the NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championships on Wednesday.

Marshall ran 11.51, just off her semifinal time of 11.47 turned in last month at the Western Regionals in Arkansas.

Marshall, a Moreno Valley native, was entered in the same heat with hometown favorite Jenna Prandini (Oregon) and Texas A&M’s Olivia Ekpone. Prandini (11.11) and Ekpone (11.12) will be seeded third and fourth in Friday’s championship race.

Alabama’s Remona Burchell won heat one (10.95), and Morolake Akinosun of Texas took the second heat (11.04).

Also qualifying were Florida’s Shayla Sanders (11.12), USC’s Tynia Gaither (11.23), Jennifer Madu of Texas A&M (11.23) and Penn State’s Mahagony Jones (11.29).

On Saturday at Cal Aggie Hall of Fame ceremonies, Marshall was presented the Heitman Award as UCD’s top female athlete.

Wednesday’s 100 meters marked the second consecutive year the Aggie ran in the NCAA finals. In becoming the first UCD sprinter to make the national meet, Marshall ran 11.45 in 2013 — taking 18th overall.

Now, distance runner Raquel Lambdin carries the UCD banner in the 1,500 semifinals Thursday at Hayward Field.

Camarillo’s Lambdin used an impressive closing kick to finish in 4:20.89 at the University of Arkansas. She is seeded 23rd, but her time was a personal best and No.2 all-time at Davis.

Thursday’s race is set to run at 4:45 p.m. with finals Saturday.
