Results

TOWSON, Maryland — The spring weather finally arrived in the Mid-Atlantic Region, and the Maryland Eastern Shore track team responded with a solid performance at the Towson Invitational. With a total of 56 points for the men and 35 for the women, the Hawks took home a pair of fifth place finishes at Johnny Unitas Stadium Saturday (Apr. 14).

Seven Hawks earned postseason qualifications across four events. This includes the 4x400 relay team of freshman Timothy Brice (Baltimore, Maryland), senior Donovan Mundy (Jacksonville, Florida), freshman Janoi Brown (Randallstown, Maryland) and freshman Ngoy Yamitshi (Germantown, Maryland). The quartet ran the 4x400 in 3:17.26 to meet IC4A qualifications and earn six points for the meet with a third place finish.

A trio of athletes cracked MEAC qualifications. Freshman Jessica Roney (Windsor Mill, Maryland) will compete in the 400 meter hurdles at Greensboro thanks to her time of 1:04.02. The mark also added four points to the women’s total. Fellow freshman Kyle Nottage (Waldorf, Maryland) cracked the MEAC’s discus qualification mark with a distance of 40.60 meters.


 

 

Senior Oussama Chouati (Manresa, Spain) also will head to MEAC’s in the 1500 meter run. Not only that, his time of 4:01.47 served as the Hawks’ one victory at Towson.

A pair of Hawks earned runner-up finishes across the Chesapeake. Sophomore Neus Quinonero (Valencia, Spain) ran the women’s 1500 in 4:41.97 and senior Stanley Meli (Eldoret, Kenya) ran the 3000 steeplechase in 10:12.77. Each athlete tallied eight points for their respective teams.

In terms of personal records, 17 members of The Shore achieved a top mark. Five athletes of the men’s team earned new heights in the 200 meter dash alone—Brown, freshman Chidera Egeonu (Newark, Delaware), freshman Brandon King (Fulton, Maryland), Mundy and freshman Ne'Angelo Lake (Greenbelt, Maryland).   

The Hawks plan to split teams next week between two meets in Virginia. Some will go to the Virginia Challenge in Charlottesville while others will head to Newport News for the Captains’ Challenge, hosted by Christopher Newport University.
