Quinn Improves Time at LU
LYNCHBURG, VA – On Wednesday, four members of the Randolph College outdoor track and field teams ran at the Liberty Twilight, a meet hosted by Liberty University to allow some opponents to complete the season, and give some a chance to solidify a spot for the national championship meet.
Anthony Quinn did just that. He ran only one event, which is his staple, the 110-meter hurdles. With the runners going against a strong headwind, Quinn won the race, beating two Division I hurdlers along with another top DIII athlete in the process. He improved on his season-best, crossing in a time of 14.67, which moves him to 15th in the country.
Matthieu Meyer ran in the 800-meter race for the final time in his Randolph career. He posted a time of 2:03.43, which saw him beat several other runners. Michaela Saunders ran in the women's 800-meter race, and she finished her first year of competition with a time of 2:38.84. That time allowed her to win the heat. Jordan Sheets was the final member of the team to run, as she competed in the 400-meter race. She ended her first campaign with a time of 1:03.10, which just barely missed a new career-best.
The WildCats will now wait on final meets to see if any qualified for the national championship meet, which is to be held later this month.
