BIRMINGHAM, Ala.—After taking a redshirt season last year, senior sprinter and hurdler Tiarra Goode is heading back to the NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championship, which begins Friday in Winston-Salem, N.C.

Goode became BSC's first-ever national champion at the Division III level back in 2012, winning the 60-meter dash indoor title and then the 100-meter hurdles outdoor title. She is also a nine-time All-American. Goode enters the 2015 postseason ranked 14th in the nation in the 200-meter dash with a time of 25.55, which she clocked at the Sewanee Indoor Invitational on Feb. 28.

"I could not be more proud of Tiarra," Head Coach Kenneth Cox said. "Qualifying for nationals is always a blessing regardless of the amount of times you make the list. She has worked extremely hard to prepare herself for the 2015 season and it is an honor to have her as a leader on our team. Her amazing work ethic and confidence has been the biggest difference in her continued success. The best is still yet to come!"

Championship competition begins at 10:30 a.m. ET on Friday at the JDL Fast Track in Winston-Salem. Goode will compete in the 200m preliminaries at 4:50 p.m. ET, with the finals on Saturday at 4:05 p.m. ET. For live results, click here.
