Kentucky, which featured sprint star Abby Steiner on the second leg, qualified with the second-fastest time from the semis after taking second place in heat two behind Texas in 42.53.

Coastal Carolina, with sprint star Melisa Jefferson running the anchor leg, closed very fast late to clock 43.23 and secured the last qualifying spot to the final on Saturday.

Hometown favorite Oregon ran 42.64 seconds for the fourth quickest time heading into the final with four teams from the third heat advancing to the final. 

Florida State registered 42.78 for second place behind the Ducks with Ohio State (43.11) and South Carolina (43.21) also making progress to the medal race.

Baylor also failed to progress after running 43.78, while the Texas A&M Aggies failed to finish in their heat.
