RACE NOTABLES

  • The men's 4x400m relay team secured their spot in the finals after finishing fourth in their heat of the 4x400 and placing fifth overall with a combined time of 3:11.07 just four seconds behind the top qualifier.
  • UMO will have their work cut out for them in the finals as the Trojans lost roughly a second per leg to the top finisher overall in the event and will need to overcome that if the squad has any hopes of garnering their first-ever national championship.
