Miners Post National Marks at Texas Relays

Miners Post National Marks at Texas Relays
Sports
Friday, March 29, 2013 - 10:00pm

The Miners concluded a full day of action at the 86th Clyde Littlefield Texas Relays and dominated the field at the Mike A. Myers Stadium.

“I thought three performances stood out today,” said head coach Mika Laaksonen. “Janice (Jackson) running 13.24 to make the finals in the 100m hurdles, Mark (Jackson) placing fifth in the men’s triple jump which included many of this year’s indoor All-Americans and the men’s 4x400m relay that qualified for the finals.”

The men’s 4x400m relay proved to be a threat this season as the squad finished fourth overall in the prelims. The team featured Miners Carnell Horn, A-Shawni Mitchell, Daniel Tarango and Abiola Onakoya. The Conference USA Indoor Champions clocked in the 11th-fastest time in the nation (3:10.17). They will be competing in the finals tomorrow at 3:40 p.m. (MT).

Also highlighting the second day of action for the Orange and Blue is Mark Jackson in the triple jump. In the juniors’ third attempt of the day, Jackson recorded a leap of 16.05m (52-08.00) W: 2.6. The jumpers’ mark is also the fifth-best mark in the nation, thus far.

“It was great to see that Mark is recovering from his injury that stopped his indoor season,” said Laaksonen. “His performance shows promise for the future.”

The men’s 4x100m relay was unsuccessful on day two of Texas Relays as they were disqualified for a bad baton exchange.

On the women’s side Janice Jackson was second in heat 11 of the 100m hurdles. The junior clocked in a time of 13.24 finishing sixth overall out of 84 competitors. The hurdlers’ time also earned her the No. 8 spot in the national rankings.

Brianna McGhee registered a time of 13.92, while Samantha Sharper posted a time of 14.19 in the 100m hurdle finals. The duo failed to advance to the finals, but Jackson will take the track in the Orange and Blue at 1:25 p.m.

Seniors Yolanda Suggs and Magen Del Pino represented the Miners in the 100m prelims. Suggs crossed the finish line sixth in he seventh heat of the day with a time of 11.90. Del Pino raced in the eighth heat and finished third with a time of 11.93. Their times were not enough to qualify for the 100m finals.

“I can’t wait to see what Janice and our men’s 4x400m relay can do in tomorrow’s finals,” said Laaksonen. “It would be nice to see 13.2 from Janice and 3:07 or better from our men’s relay team.”

The distance team is scheduled to take the track later tonight at the Stanford Invitational.

Anthony Rotich will be competing in the 5,000m at 9:50p.m., while teammates Elphas Maiyo and Elkana Rotich will race in the 10,000m at 11:56 p.m.

All-American Risper Kimaiyo will also be representing the Miners at Stanford, Calif. in the 10,000m.
