As she prepares for her first trip to the NCAA Division I East Preliminary Round meet, junior Brenna Smith chatted with Alan York of the Liberty Flames Sports Network.

Smith, who hails from Haddon Township, N.J., is coming off of a record-breaking performance at last week's Big South Outdoor Track & Field Championships in Charleston, S.C. She won her first Big South women's javelin title, thanks to a school-record throw of 158-7 during round three.

Smith moved up to No. 3 on the Big South's all-time women's javelin list in the process, and she is the No. 24 seed in the event at next week's NCAA Division I East Preliminary Round meet.

The 2017 NCAA Division I East Preliminary Round meet will be contested May 25-27 at the University of Kentucky Outdoor Track & Field Complex in Lexington, Ky. The women's javelin is slated for May 25 at 4 p.m. The top 12 finishers in each event will advance to the 2017 NCAA Division I Outdoor Track & Field Championships in Eugene, Ore., June 7-10.
