PRINCESS ANNE, Md. – This week’s Hawk Talk edition features news from outdoor track & field and more.

Hope everyone is going their summer!


On May 23, Maryland Eastern Shore track & field seniors Khalil Rmidi Kinini (Malaga, Spain), Taj Showalter (Anchorage, Alaska) and Shauntel Lucius (Newark, New Jersey) earned one more chance to compete as Hawks as each of them qualified from the 2017 NCAA Preliminaries in Lexington, Ky.

Four days later (May 27), Rmidi Kinini advanced to the NCAA National Championships in Oregon after setting a new school record in the steeplechase (8:46.62).

Last Wednesday (June 7), Rmidi Kinini finished his collegiate racing career at the NCAA Outdoor Track & Field National Championships where he placed 24th in the 3000 meter steeplechase.

The race concluded the 2016-17 athletic calendar. The 2017-18 track season begins with the men’s quest for a fourth consecutive MEAC cross country title in September.



On May 26, the University of Maryland Eastern Shore saw nearly 450 students receive their degrees after listening to an inspirational speech from commencement speaker The Honorable Rushen L. Baker III, County Executive of Prince George’s County, Maryland.

Among the graduates, more than two dozen student-athletes were recognized for their academic accomplishment.

“I couldn’t be prouder to see our student-athletes graduate,” said Maryland Eastern Shore Director of Athletics Keith Davidson. “We have committed and talented young people who work hard not only representing our University in competition, but in the classroom and then later in life.”
