GREENSBORO – Roshel Bygraves will try to go out a champion on Saturday. The senior won her 400 meters heat Friday afternoon at the 2014 MEAC Men’s and Women’s Track and Field Championships, qualifying her for the Saturday final at A&T’s Irwin Belk Track.

 Her two biggest problems will be from Hampton. Malekah Holland had the fastest time in the 400 preliminary at 53.562. She was followed by teammate Le’Quisha Parker who ran a 54.20 in her heat. But Bygraves was by no means a slouch. Her time of 54.54 was one-tenths of a second off her personal record of 54.53 ran during the preliminary heat of last season’s MEAC championships.

Florida A&M leads after the second day with 48 points. But Hampton is expected to make a big push on Saturday. The Aggies are a half point behind the Pirates in seventh place with 18 points.

Bygraves has two other ways she can score on Saturday. She will also make an appearance as one-fourth of the 4x100 and 4x400 meter finals. Fellow senior Jessica Farr is the final of two events. Farr qualified for the 200 final on Thursday and qualified for the 400 final on Friday.

Sherri Owens and Jasmine Baskerville will try to give the women an edge in the javelin, while Tatianna Clark competes in the triple jump. Clark finished seventh in the long jump on Friday at 18-feet, 3 ½ inches. Senior Brittanie Morris will be the 100-meter hurdles finals thanks to a 14.19 ran in her qualifier on Friday. Morris also qualified for the 400-meter hurdles final on Thursday by winning her heat in 1:02.00.

Teammate and freshman Daniqua Dye is also in the 400 hurdles final.
