In a stunning development tonight at the 2013 NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championships West Preliminary Round in Austin, Texas, Oregon senior Jordan Hasay, the fourth fastest NCAA 10,000 runner in history, failed to advance to the NCAA finals.

The following tweet from Oregon says it all:

Four years ago, Hasay entered Oregon amidst a ton of hype after a phenomenal prep career. The fact that she might not even make NCAA finals as a senior is truly stunning.

The former 1,500 runner seemed to have found her niche this year in the 10,000 as she ran 32:06.64 at Payton Jordan.

It certainly was hot this evening in Austin. The women’s 10,000 was scheduled to start at 9:00 pm Central. At 10:00 pm Central time, it was still 83 degrees with 71% humidity in Austin, TX. That being said, you’d think a runner who had 1:33 on the 13th qualifier in a race where the top 12 advance would easily advance.

Jordan Hasay was on top of the world at the 2011 NCAA indoors

Hasay, however, only finished 18th in 35:51.20 in race where 12th was 35:14.54.
