James Quarles (Jr./Washington, D.C.) and Burkheart Ellis, Jr. (Fr./Raleigh, N.C.) was victorious in 3:16.82. Hyatt is the 2012 Jamaican 400 champion and competed in the London Olympics. Wilkinson (Jr./Summerville, S.C.) cleared a height of 48-8 to win the men’s triple jump.

Other qualifiers include Jermaine Jones (Fr./Wilmington, N.C.), who was second in the men’s 200 dash in 21.74 seconds. Sherri -Ann Ashman (So./Brooklyn, N.Y.) placed second in the women’s 400 dash in 57.65, and Eddie Shelton (Jr./Deltona, Fla.) was seventh in the men’s high jump with a height of 6-8.75.

Jones, who already qualified in the men’s 60 dash a week ago, finished second in the event. Quarles was second in the men’s 400 while Gerkenz Senesca (Sr./Newark, N.J.) and Ty’reak Murray (Jr./Portsmouth, Va.) were second and third, respectively, in the men’s 60 hurdles. Bernard was third in the women’s 400. Senesca and Murray ran provisional times in their event last week.
