Even though the men's and lady hornets indoor track & field team didn't win the MEAC Championship they end up in the top 10 to finished the season.

On the ladies side, it was Nykeisha Sewell who gave made the human highlight reel of the MEAC Indoor Track and Field Championships. She earned All-MEAC Third Team honors by collecting 3,331 points in the pentathlon, following by boosting a first place performance in the pentathlon long jump with a top leap of 5.45 meters, securing third place in the high jump, topping out at 1.65 meters, and fourth in the regular long jump with a top effort of 5.56 meters.

Wow that's a accomplishment for a individual Hornet athlete like Nykeshia Sewell. We will get to see more of Sewell in the spring when the Hornets begin outdoor track & field season.

On the men's side, once again Donte Holmes proved to everyone in the MEAC Conference that he is the best indoor runner the world has ever seen. Holmes finished 1st in the indoor 800 meters with a time of 1:52.51.

Also Holmes helped lead the Hornets to the championship in the 1600-meter relay. He teamed up with Thibou, Leslie Murray and Kevaughn Laviea to post a winning time of 3:16.84.

Holmes is one of the best runners around and come outdoor track & field season. Holmes and the Hornets will continue to dominated the track & field finished in the top 10 and maybe the MEAC Championship.
