Yarbrough, Reid, 4x100 All Make NCAA FieldMay 27, 2006 · MT Media Relations
Yarbrough set a school record in the 110-meter hurdles, breaking a mark he previously shared with Miguel Williams (1983). Yarbrough's time of 13.67 was good for second place, eclipsing the old mark by two-hundredths of a second. Yarbrough advances to his third NCAA Championships, looking for an All-American honor to cap his outstanding career.
Reid continued to dazzle for the Blue Raiders, placing third in 10.28 in the 100-meters and third in the 200 in 20.77. The junior was just six-hundredths of a second off the winning mark in the 100 and less than three-tenths of a second from first place in the 200.
Freshman Samuel Adade, senior VanTonio Fraley, Reid and junior Daryl Terrell placed third in the 4x100, posting a time of 39.94. The foursome finished behind relay teams from LSU and Alabama.
Terrell, junior Sean Waller, junior Jermaine Barton and Fraley placed sixth in the 4x400-meter relay with a time of 3:06.68, just missing out on an automatic bid to the NCAA meet. The foursome must wait to find out if their mark of 3:06.22 at the Yellowjacket Invitational in April will be good enough to make the championship field.
On the women's side, freshman TraMayne Gillyard, junior Shanna-Kay Campbell, sophomore Antranette Stringer and junior Veronia Patterson finished 10th in the 4x400-meter relay in 3:41.44.
