June 9, 2010 · Christian Lemon

EUGENE, Ore. - Middle Tennessee senior Zamzam Sangau ended her illustrious collegiate track and field career on Wednesday. She placed 13th in the 800 meters at the 2010 NCAA Outdoor Championships in Eugene, Ore.

Sangau's time of 2:07.49 placed her 13th overall in the field of 24. The Uganda native was unable to advance to Friday's 800 meter finals.

In her four years at Middle Tennessee, Sangau has proven herself as the greatest female distance runner in school history. She holds seven total Middle Tennessee distance records between the indoor and outdoor circuits and has earned four different Sun Belt individual titles.

Last fall, Sangau became the first female runner from Middle Tennessee to qualify for the NCAA Cross Country Championships.

Fellow senior Sarah Nambawa will challenge for her fourth All-American honor on Thursday as she competes in the triple jump at the 2010 championships.
