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.
Jones currently ranks third in Division II in the men’s 60 and 200. Shaw is third in the women’s 400 and Senesca ranks third in the men’s 60 hurdles. Both the men’s and women’s 4x400 relay teams are third and Wilkinson ranks third in the men’s triple jump.
