Ferguson Qualifies for National Championships at Towson Open

Towson, Md. ... Sophomore Maria Ferguson automatically qualified for the 2001 NCAA Division III Outdoor Track & Field National Championships in the 100-meter dash with a time of 12.14 on Saturday at the Towson University Open.

Ferguson, who placed fifth in the event, trimmed her NCAA Division III provisional standard of 12.2 that she ran a week earlier at the Mason-Dixon Conference Championships.

The Bobcats also received outstanding performances from sophomores Dante Myles and Karold Gray.

Myles won the 100-meter dash in a personal-record 10.43, just .02 seconds off the school record and the second-fastest time in Division III this season.

Gray met the NCAA Division III provisional qualification with his second-place finish in the 200-meter dash in 21.60 seconds.

Sophomore Charlie Poole claimed the discus title with a distance of 146 feet, 4 inches, finished second in the hammer throw (139 feet, 4 1/2 inches) and placed fifth in the shot put (44 feet, 7 inches).

Senior Jermaine Bell won the javelin with a distance of 185 feet, 2 inches, while freshman Pat Malone was third after recording a personal-record of 184 feet.

In women's action, junior Cindy Reese was third in the pole vault with a mark of 8 feet, 10 1/2 inches and 10th in the long jump (4.82 meters).

Jimmien Strong took second in the javelin with a throw of 83 feet, 1 3/4 inches, and the 4x100-meter relay team placed second in 49.03 seconds.

The Bobcats will compete at the Baldwin-Wallace Open in Berea, Ohio, on Friday before heading to Millikin University in Decatur, Ill., for the NCAA Division III National Championships May 24-26.
