EUGENE, Ore. – Dartmouth women's senior Helen Schlachtenhaufen finished 16th in the 1500m national semifinals Thursday night at the 2017 NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championship.

The meet was held at Oregon's Hayward Field, commonly referred to as Tracktown USA.

Schlachtenhaufen's 4:20.43 in the second of two heats was not enough to earn a spot in Saturday's national championship race.

After the first heat put together blistering times — including the top-two collegiate times in the event this season — the Big Green senior needed to finish in the top five of her heat to earn one of the automatic berths into the final.

Unfortunately, Schlachtenhaufen was seventh and saw her Dartmouth career come to an end on the NCAA's biggest stage.

In making it to Oregon and finishing 16th, Schlachtenhaufen earned All-America Second Team honors, the first such honors of her career.

Schlachtenhaufen returns to Hanover where she will graduate from the College on Sunday morning along with the rest of the Class of 2017.
