April 19, 2013 - On a cool day the Emporia State track and field teams qualified two relays and four individuals for Saturdays finals at the 86th Kansas Relays. In addition two marks hit the NCAA Division II provisional qualifying standard.
The men’s 110m hurdles produced two D-II provisional marks but due to the advancement formula the fastest time will not advance to Saturday’s finals. Gannon Mack ran a 14.56 but was the third fastest non-heat winning time and failed to make the finals. Andrew Etheridge ran a provisional qualifying time of 14.63 and advanced to Staurday’s finals as a heat winner.
Mack will be running on Saturday as he advanced to the finals of the 400m hurdles. He ran 54.26 to win his heat and advance with the fourth best time.
Shjuan Richardson, the tenth fastest football player in the 100m in all NCAA Divisions, advanced to Saturday’s finals with a 10.75 to secure the second non-heat winning spot in the finals.
Vincent Howze ran a 21.55 to advance to Saturday’s finals in the 200m with the fourth best time.
Mack and Howze teamed with Ashton Proctor and John Thurston to run a 3:16.88 in the 4x400m relay and qualify for the finals on Saturday.
The women’s 4x400m relay team of Marqueita Marisette, Peyton Weiss, Lindsay Kunkel and Jackie Jacobs turned in a time of 3:53.16 to advance to finals on Saturday with the sixth best mark.
The track qualifiers will be joined by eight Hornets in five different field events on Saturday in the final day of competition for the Kansas Relays in Memorial Stadium.
