EUGENE, Ore. - VMI alumnus Donnie Cowart '08 advanced to the Olympic Trials final of the 3,000-meter steeplechase with his 11th-place finish in the preliminaries, contested Monday in Eugene, Ore.

Cowart finished sixth in his heat with a 8:31.51 effort, and was the top time qualifier to Thursday's final, which will be contested at 9:30 p.m. Eastern time and is currently scheduled to be shown on the NBC Sports Network.

The top three finishers in the final who have surpassed the Olympic A standard, 8:23.10, will punch their tickets for July's London Olympic Games. Only five runners have surpassed that time, with Cowart not being among them, and Thursday's final is the last chance for any runner to achieve that Olympic A mark.
