CARSON, Calif. -- Former University of Tennessee standout Dee Dee Trotter earned a trip to the IAAF World Championships Saturday, as she raced to a second-place finish in the 400-meter dash at the USA Outdoor Track & Field Championships at the Home Depot Center.

Trotter, who gave up her final collegiate season of eligibility in 2005 in order to run professionally, rolled to a career-best time of 49.88. Running for adidas, the 2004 NCAA Outdoor 400m champion finished just behind Nike's Sanya Richards (49.28) and will join the ex-Texas All-American in representing the United States at the World Championships in Helsinki, Finland, Aug. 6-14. Monique Henderson of UCLA, the 2005 NCAA Outdoor champ in the 400m, was third at 49.96.

Tennessee will now have at least two representatives in Helsinki, as Trotter joins UT sophomore Tianna Madison, a Friday night runner-up finisher in the long jump. Kameisha Bennett, a 2004 Big Orange graduate, will attempt to join them Sunday, as she runs in the final of the 800 meters at 5:07 p.m. Eastern Time. Hazel Clark and Jearl Miles-Clark, sister and wife of Lady Vol Head Coach J.J. Clark, will join Bennett in an event that should be among those shown during ESPN2's two-hour telecast window that begins at 5 p.m. ET.
