Herring Wins 400 at Last Chance MeetMay 19, 2002 · MT Media Relations
Herring ran 45.63 in the victory, his second fastest time in the 400m this season after posting a time of 45.60 at the Sea Ray Relays in Knoxville, Tenn., in early April.
The Middle Tennessee track squads had only a few athletes in Saturday's events, with Herring the only winner.
Sophomore Chris Koger cleared 6-10.75 in the high jump to finish seventh. The 6-4 Koger has twice jumped a provisional qualifying mark of 7-1.75 this season.
For the Lady Raiders, freshman Rosemary Okafor finished fifth in the 400m in 54.13, matching her second time of the season in the event. Okafor ran 53.70 to provisionally qualify for the NCAA Championships at the Alabama Relays in March, and posted a 54.13 at the Sea Ray Relays last month.
Junior Stephany Reid placed ninth in the triple jump, clearing 40-11.75, while Kim Freeman was 14th in the event after jumping 40-2.25.
The track squads must now wait to find out if they qualified for the NCAA Championships, scheduled for May 29-June 1 in Baton Rouge, La., on the LSU campus.
