White, Men's 4x100 Excel at UGA Track & Field Meet
ATHENS, Ga. -- Catawba sent MeKayla White, Darius Turner and the men’s 4x100 relay team to the University of Georgia’s Torrin Lawrence Memorial Track & Field Meet at Spec Towns Track over the weekend in an attempt to meet qualifying standards for the NCAA II Championships.
White finished fifth in the women’s long jump with a leap of 6.22 meters. Unfortunately, the jump, which would be the best Division II mark this year, was just over the allowed limit for wind at +4.2. A qualifying jump must be under 4.0 wind allowance.
The men’s 4x100 relay team set a school mark and finished second with a time of 40.90. The team of Terrell Johnson, Justen Burnette, Rashaun Noble and Darius Turner posted a provisional qualifying time as the 24th-ranked time. Turner took third in the men’s 100, nursing a ginger hamstring to a clocking of 10.73. He has a provisional time that stands 18th in NCAA II.
