Four Bobcats Headed to Outdoor National Championships

Frostburg, Md. ... Four Frostburg State track and field athletes will compete in the 2001 NCAA Division III Outdoor Track & Field National Championships to be held Thursday through Saturday at Millikin University in Decatur, Ill.

Senior Michael Taye (Rockville, Md./Richard Montgomery) leads three members of the Bobcat men's team and will compete in both the 5,000 and 10,000-meter events. He owns the fastest time in the 10,000 in Division III this season at 30:26.93, and he is ranked seventh in the 5,000 with a time of 14:40.2. The 12-time All-American won the 10,000-meter title and was the runner-up in the 5,000 at the 1999 outdoor championships. He did not compete in last year's outdoor national championship due to injury.

Sophomore Dante Myles (Hyattsville, Md./Archbishop Carroll) will run both the 100 and 200-meter dashes. Myles earned outdoor All-America honors in the 100 last year with a third-place finish in 10.76, and he has the second-fastest time in Division III (10.43) this season. He is ranked seventh in the nation in the 200, having run a 21.48 earlier this month.

Sophomore Karold Gray (Bowie, Md./Southern) will also compete in the 200-meter dash. He sits 13th on this year's national performance list with a 21.60 in the event.

Sophomore Maria Ferguson (Springdale, Md./Laurel) is the lone representative from the Frostburg State women's team and will run the 100-meter dash. She automatically qualified for the event with a 12.14 at the Towson Invitational earlier this month, the eighth fastest time in Division III this season.
