— Numerous Duke track and field team members took advantage of the final weekend of competition before the NCAA first round meet scheduled for May 29-31. A school record and myriad personal-best marks fell at both the NC State Wolfpack Last Chance Meet in Raleigh, N.C., and the Georgia Tech Invitational in Atlanta, Ga., Friday.

The trio of redshirt sophomore Teddi Maslowski, senior Christian Britto and redshirt freshman Urina Harrell posted performances that will allow them to join numerous Duke competitors at the NCAA first round meet in two weeks.

The NCAA first round field is comprised of the top 48 student-athletes who declare for each event. A finalized list of competitors is scheduled for release later this week.

Maslowski reclaimed the Duke school record in the 100-meter hurdles after clocking a time of 13.73 in Raleigh. Maslowski bested her previous personal record by nearly two-tenths of a second. The Burgettstown, Pa., native returned to the track for the 400m hurdles later in the day, winning the event by over a second with a time of 59.39. Maslowski’s 400m-hurdle time, which ranks second on Duke’s all-time list, should qualify her for the NCAA first round competition.

Britto, with the help of teammate Shaun Thompson, ran a personal-best time of 9:03.39 in the men’s 3,000m steeplechase to conclude his final competition of the season before the NCAA first round meet. Britto’s growth throughout his career at Duke has been evident, improving on his sophomore year personal-best in the steeplechase of 9:58.17 by nearly 55 seconds.

In the shot put, Harrell posted the farthest distance of her collegiate career, sending the implement 48-2.75 (14.70). The Richmond, Calif., native improved on her own personal-best mark and remains second on Duke’s all-time list.

In addition to Maslowski, Britto and Harrell, junior Nate McClafferty clocked a personal-best time of 1:51.48 to win the second heat of the men’s 800 while senior Ashley Berry posted a personal-record performance in the 3,000m steeplechase at Georgia Tech, placing second with a time of 10:27.50.

Four Duke competitors, including Banks, Farley, Granger and Meier, are scheduled to compete in the women’s 800 Saturday in Atlanta.
