Results

PRINCESS ANNE, Maryland Senior Oussama Chouati (Manresa, Spain) led the way for Maryland Eastern Shore Track & Field on Saturday (Feb. 17). His 13 points across two events helped the Hawk men finish in ninth place at the 2018 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) Indoor Championships in Landover, Maryland. The women’s 4x400 team propelled that side to a 10th place finish.

Chouati took a second place spot with his time of 8:53.28 in the 3000 meter run. That was followed by a 4:22.42 running of the mile to take fourth place. The senior earned 16 of the Hawks 28 points during the meet.

Maryland Eastern Shore’s women finished the weekend with 10 points. That was aided by the 4x400 quartet of senior Luan Gabriel (Roseau, Dominica), freshman Jessica Roney (Windsor Mill, Maryland), senior Lenneisha Gilbert (Miami, Florida) and sophomore Summer Fields (Baltimore, Maryland) recording a time of 3:54.65 to come in sixth place. The time was the fastest mark for a Hawk women’s 4x400 relay squad this season.


 

 

Two personal records were also set on Saturday. Fields ran the 60 dash in 7.84 seconds and sophomore Sharon Jerop (Eldoret, Kenya) ran the 3K in 10:39.49.

For the second straight year, North Carolina A&T men’s and women’s teams repeated as champions. They become the first MEAC teams to sweep over two straight years since Delaware State in 1986 and 1987.

Senior Tanise Edwards (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) is eligible to compete in the IC4A/ECAC Championships in early March. For everyone else the outdoor season begins in mid-March.
