NEW Mexico Military Institute athletics scholarship holders Ana Baleveicau and Alisha Dickinson have qualified for the season ending National Junior College Amateur Athletics Division One finals in Arizona next month.

This is after the duo impressed at the West Texas A&M Meet in Canyon earlier this month setting new records for their school.

Baleveicau, a former Adi Cakobau School student, set a new record in the 400 metres hurdles in a time of 1.03.65 minutes. With this she finished second overall in the event and became the tenth fastest qualifier for the finals.

Alisha, competing in the heptathlon for the first time, broke three records in the 100m hurdles, 200m sprint and long jump.

She amassed a total of 4112 which qualified her as the fifth best for the finals.

Both athletes will have a chance to better their times and rankings at the finals which will be held from May 15-17.

They are also strong contenders for the Fiji team to the 2015 Pacific Games in Papua New Guinea.
