WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University track & field team did not travel far for their second weekend in season as they went less than 15 miles to Maryland's Kehoe Track at Ludwig Field to compete in the Maryland Invitational in nearby College Park, Md. The Hoyas put up six BIG EAST qualifying times at the one-day event.

All-American Amanda Kimbers (Baltimore, Md./McDonogh) and Tenille Stoudenmire (San Diego, Calif./Rancho Bernardo) took one and two in the women's 200-meter dash with times of 23.75 and 24.48, respectively. Both were BIG EAST qualifying times.

London Finley (Los Angeles, Calif./St. Mary's Academy) ran in her specialty event, clocking 1:00.55 in the women's 400-meter hurdles to take second place and secure a spot at the BIG EAST Outdoor Championships.

In the women's 4x100-meter relay, Chela Green (Nashville, Tenn./Ensworth) joined Kimbers, Stoudenmire and Finley to take the top spot with a time of 46.55.

For the men Kevin Wilson (Virginia Beach, Va./Landstown/George Mason) took first place with a time of 48.08 in the men's 400-meter dash, enough to qualify him for the BIG EAST Championships.

Also taking first place was Toby Ulm (Marlborough, United Kingdom/St. John's School & Community College) in the men's 400-meter hurdles with a time of 53.03.

In the men's 110-meter high hurdles Biyerem Okengwu (Piscataway, N.J./Piscataway Township) took third in the finals after qualifying in the preliminary round. His time of 14.43 in the finals was enough to qualify the senior for the conference championships as well as take third place in the event.

 

 

The Hoyas continue the season on April 6-7 as they split sites between the Stanford Invitational in Palo Alto, Calif., and the Colonial Relays in Williamsburg, Va.
