BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — It was another banner day for Merrimack senior Carly Muscaro at the NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships in Alabama on Saturday, as she defended her national championship in the 400 meters and also captured her first national championship in the 200 meters.

Muscaro’s win in the 400 meters (51.78 seconds) was the fastest time in Division II history. Muscaro ran a time of 23.57 seconds in the 200 meters.


Muscaro now has four national titles on her resume after winning 400-meter national championships both indoors and outdoors last season. Muscaro’s record-setting time in the 400 bests the previous Division II all-time record set by Lorraine Graham at the 1997 Indoor Championships, which was a time of 52.22. Muscaro had previously run 52.27 earlier this season to rank second behind Graham at the time.

Muscaro will now turn her attention to the outdoor season, which gets started next weekend with the 49er Classic at the University of North Carolina-Charlotte.
