Dumas posted the 12th quickest time in the 400m hurdles trials covering the distance in 1 minute, 5.52 seconds. Her time bested her previous season-best time of 1:06.18 turned in at the Florida State Relays back in March. Dumas missed advancing to Saturday's final by just over one second. Dumas will compete in the pole vault on Saturday.
Competition resumes Saturday starting at 10:00 a.m. with the women's heptathlon long jump.
