PRINCESS ANNE, Maryland Performances by sophomore Tamunoibi Dabipi (Salisbury, Maryland) and the men’s distance medley team capped off the second day for Maryland Eastern Shore at the 2018 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) Indoor Track & Field Championships.

After two days of competition the men stand in seventh with 15 points with the women in eighth holding seven points.

Dabipi set a personal record in the men’s weight throw, tossing to a mark of 16.57 meters. That effort was worth third place and six points. The men’s distance team of senior Donovan Mundy (Jacksonville, Florida), freshman Janoi Brown (Randallstown, Maryland), junior Judah Corriette (Roseau, Dominica) and senior Oussama Chouati (Manresa, Spain) finished in 10:11.45 securing a runner up spot and eight points.

On Thursday (Feb. 15), three Hawks scored points to set the table for Friday (Feb. 16). Sophomore Sharon Jerop (Eldoret, Kenya) earned three points with an 18:34.75 in the 5K, and senior Tanise Edwards (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) matched her points with a 5.57 meter long jump. Jerop’s time will serve as a personal record for her.


 

 

Chouati also helped the cause on Thursday by running the men’s 5K in 15:41.66 to score one point.

Other notable performances include freshman Jessica Roney (Windsor Mill, Maryland) earning a win in the 800 meter portion of the pentathlon and fellow freshman Timothy Brice (Baltimore, Maryland) setting a new personal record in the 400 meter dash.

The third and final day of the MEAC Championships begins at 9:30 a.m. Saturday (Feb. 17), with coverage beginning at 1 p.m. live on ESPN3.
