Menlo School grad Price gets a chance at Olympic dream


At the Canadian track and field championships on Friday at Foote Field in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, Menlo School grad Maddy Price finished second in her heat of the 400 meter semifinal and fifth overall to advance into Saturday's final.

Price, a junior at Duke, where she ran the qualifying standard, will also compete in the 200 meter semifinal and final on Sunday.

Price set two school records with the Blue Devils in the spring, racing an 11.65 in the 100 and 23.48 in the 200. She also owns the school's second-fastest time in the 400 with a 52.88.

In Eugene, Stanford's Kori Carter qualified for the final of the women's 400 hurdles at the U.S. Olympic Trials.

Carter finished third in her semifinal heat, in 55.86, the seventh-fastest qualifying mark.

In the 1,500 semifinal, both incoming freshman Catherine Aragon and Stanford's Elise Cranny finished out of the money. Aragon ran 14th in 4:12.71, .07 seconds from the final qualifying mark. Cranny finished with a 4:14.20.
