Wray qualified for her third final of the meet when she placed fifth in the 100-meter dash preliminaries in 11.77 seconds Friday. The top eight advanced to final at 3:50 p.m. Saturday.
Wray was the only freshman to reach the 100 final. Her time is the fastest by an NAIA freshman in the national preliminaries since Mount Mercy's Bri'Anna Branch ran 11.70 in 2016.
Ford qualified in her second event with a season-best time of 56.09 seconds in the 400. Ford ranked seventh among the nine who advanced to the final at 5:30 p.m.
Wray and Ford will compete for XULA's 400 relay team in a 2:40 p.m. final. Wray will run in the 200 final at 5:10 p.m.
In the final women's event of day two, XULA qualified for the 1,600 relay final with the fourth best time of the prelims and a school-record 3:48.75. Wray, Ky'Reon McBride, Alexis Williams and Ford are the relay members.
Edward Angel tied for 23rd in the men's high jump at 1.97 meters/6 feet, 5 1/2 inches. Angel, an All-American a year ago in this event, was eliminated after missing all three of his attempts at 2.02 meters/6-7 1/2.
Also competing Saturday will be Brandon Matthews in the men's triple jump at 1:30 p.m.
Here are all XULA results from the second day of NAIA nationals:
100 preliminaries: Shalysa Wray, 5th in 11.77; Alexis Milton, 27th in 13.30
400 preliminaries: Ariel Ford, 7th in 56.09
High Jump: Edward Angel, tied for 23rd in 1.97 meters (6 feet, 5 1/2 inches)
