STATEN ISLAND, New York — Maryland Eastern Shore freshman Janoi Brown (Randallstown, Maryland) continued to set a high bar in his freshman year, resetting the school record in the 300 meter as the Hawks battled in the Seahawks Shootout on Friday (Dec. 8) at Ocean Breeze in Staten Island. The men’s team claimed second place with 105 points and the women finished third with 78.5 points, as 27 of the Hawks’ 48 events netted personal records.

“Today was a very competitive day for us.” Head coach Damion Drummond said. “Some of our times and marks could be better but we performed, showed grit and had swag.”

Brown’s time of 35.41 seconds toppled his six-day-old record of 35.60 seconds at the TCNJ Open. Previously Gregory Thomas held the top time of 35.70 seconds, set at a meet in Canada back in 1981.

In terms of the 27 PR’s set, the split between men and women was almost down the middle—14 by the men and 13 by the women. Top performances are credited to junior Joshua Dacres (Yorktown Heights, New York) with a 7.12 second running in the 60 dash, sophomore Neus Quinonero (Valencia, Spain) blasting through the 600 dash in 1:39.01, junior Judah Corriette (Roseau, Dominica) who finished the 1000 meter in 2:33.71, and freshman Christina Cropper (Wilmington, Delaware) with a mark of 5.23 meters in the long jump.

Corriette’s 1000 meter time was good for a win, one of two for the Hawks on the day. The other winning event went to the team of freshman Timothy Brice (Baltimore, Maryland), sophomore Isaiah Smith (Abington, Pennsylvania), senior Donovan Mundy (Jacksonville, Florida) and Brown for their 3:20.07 effort in the 4x400 relay.

The Hawks will take a hiatus from meets for the 2017 holidays, before gearing up in the new year at the HBCU Invitational in New York on January 12th.
