CHARLOTTE – In a meet with more than 1,500 athletes, the athletes from North Carolina A&T performed well enough stand out from the crowd.   

The men’s 4x100-relay team (Desmond Lawrence, Darryl Williams, Marquis Noble and Jeffery Lewis) kicked off today’s running events with a 40.21 first-place finish.  

Freshman Todd Townsend lit up the track with a first-place finish in the 110-hurdles as he came across the line in 14.54. The 4x400-meter relay (Dorian Claggett, Todd Townsend, Leonard Robbins and Josiah Elliott) also placed first with a finishing time of 3:10.79.

On the women’s side senior Jessica Farr placed second in the women’s 200-meter dash with a time of 24.40, making that her fastest 200 on an outdoor track.  Senior Tatianna Clark triple jumped 38-feet, 4 ¾ inches, to record a personal best and place sixth. Senior Jasmine Baskerville opened up her season today in the javelin throw with a 12th-place finish at a throw of 113-feet, 1-inch. The 4x400-meter relay, which consisted of Roshel Bygrave, Farr, Daniqua Dye and Imani Harris-Quillen, placed second with a finishing time 3:41.30.

“I’m very pleased with our young women and men,” said Duane Ross, director of track and field programs. “We competed very well, and I saw a lot of maturity in our team. What we have to do now is keep this momentum throughout the season. I was so proud of how our women responded today coming off the indoor season.”

The Aggies will split up next week. A portion of the team will travel to Austin, Texas to compete in the Clyde Littlefield Texas Relays while others will compete at the Raleigh Relays in Raleigh, N.C.
