ANNAPOLIS, Maryland — With the 2017-18 indoor track season reaching the end of the regular season, the time is now for Maryland Eastern Shore to earn postseason qualifications. Five Hawks did just that on Saturday (Jan. 27) during the team’s participation in the Wesley A. Brown Invitational at the U.S. Naval Academy.

Sophomore Neus Quinonero (Valencia, Spain) had the best day of all, punching her tickets to the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) Championship in two events—the women’s mile and the women’s 3000. Her respective times of 5:09.49 and 10:59.14 also serve as personal records.

Junior Judah Corriette (Roseau, Dominica) secured his second victory of the season in the men’s 800 meter run. His time of 1:55.93 sends him to MEAC’s and becomes a personal record. Senior Oussama Choauti (Manresa, Spain) placed second in the men’s 5K with his time of 15:10.61, earning his second trip to Landover.

On the women’s side, seniors Luan Gabriel (Roseau, Dominica) and Regyn Davis-Young (Lanham, Maryland) also head to the MEAC Championships after qualifying Saturday. Gabriel’s time of 57.91 seconds got her through in the 400 meter dash, and Davis-Young tossed the weight throw for 13.84 meters.



Four more Hawks claimed victory at Navy after Corriette. Assisting in a 4x400 relay win were sophomore Isaiah Smith (Abington, Pennsylvania), Corriette, senior Donovan Mundy (Jacksonville, Florida), and freshman Janoi Brown (Randallstown, Maryland). Freshman Jessica Roney (Windsor Mill, Maryland) also won, claiming her second of the season in the 60 hurdles.

A total of 19 personal records were set during the meet, led by freshman Chisom Onukwugha (New Carrollton, Maryland) with three PR’s—the 60 dash, 200 dash and the long jump. Quinonero’s pair of personal records had company. Sophomore Tenae Pitts (Abington, Pennsylvania) and freshman Brandon King (Fulton, Maryland). Pitts set new PR’s in the high jump and long jump, and King set them in the 60 and 200 dashes.

The Shore returns home for the Eastern Shore Invite on Friday and Saturday (Feb. 2-3) inside the William P. Hytche Athletic Center.
