Reid, 4x100 Relay Both Make NCAA Field
Reid qualifies in 100- and 200-meters, 4x100 also makes national meetMay 27, 2007 · MT Media Relations
Reid posted a season-best 10.25 in the 100-meter finals, placing third, and ran 20.58 in the 200-meter finals for a second-place finish. Reid was an All-American in the 200-meters outdoors last and will look to add to the program total of 80 All-America honors in two weeks in Sacramento, Calif.
Walker, Reid, senior Sean Waller and sophomore Samuel Adade finished third in the 4x100-meter relay with a time of 39.91, qualifying for the national meet as well.
Walker was also seventh in the 110-meter hurdles finals in 14.06, but his time of 13.80 two weeks ago at the Sun Belt Championships gives him a shot to make the field for the NCAA meet as an at-large selection.
Elsewhere on Saturday, freshman Sarah Nambawa placed 13th in the triple jump with a mark of 41-2.25, while the women's 4x400-meter relay of sophomore TraMayne Gillyard, Nambawa and seniors Shanna-Kay Campbell and Veronia Patterson finished 13th with a time of 3:41.99.
Walker and Tamgho both qualified for the NCAA Championships in the long jump on Friday and junior Carlos Morgan also has a chance to make the field in the long jump as an at-large selection after his mark of 26-2.25 at the SBC Championships.
