"George Mason University women's track and field junior Annabelle Eastman qualified for the NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championships in the steeplechase on the final day of the NCAA East Preliminaries.

The Melbourne, Australia native automatically advanced after taking third in the first heat with a time 9:54.68. She finished fifth overall after coming in ranked No. 6 in the East Region."

"Eastman's historic season will continue on at one of the biggest stages of the sport. She is a three-time school record holder in the steeplechase, 3000m and 5000m — all set during the 2021 outdoor season.

At the A-10 Outdoor Championship, she broke the meet record in the 3000m steeplechase with a personal record of 9:53.07 to qualify for the regional meet.

During the 2021 cross country season, she ran the second-fastest time ever at the A-10 Cross Country Championships, finishing runner up, to earn an at-large bid to the NCAA meet. It marked Mason's first cross country qualifier since 1996.

Eastman will now look ahead to the NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championships held from June 9-12 at historic Hayward Field in Eugene, Oregon."
