Track & Field Finished in the Top 10

Even though Norfolk State has won the 2011 MEAC Track & Field Championships, the Delaware State Men's and Women's Track & Field was impressive finishing in the top ten on Mother's Day weekend. The ladies finished eighth and the men finished seventh during the three day event. 

On the ladies side, Kendra Myers finished fourth in the long jump with a leap of 5.91 meters, her teammate Kristen Johnson finished sixth in the heptathlon. The highlight of the event belong to Tracey Fan Fan who set a career best of 1:00.63 in the 400 meter hurdles, good enough for a fourth place finish.

On the men's side the Hornet team of Tyquan Brown, Ryan Carter, Tarqi Devore, and Leslie Murrary won their third straight MEAC Title in the 1600 meter relay with a time of 3:08.42. Murray also capture the 400 meter title with a time of 50.29 seconds.

Now the that the MEAC season is over lets see how the Hornets will do individually in their respective meets between now and June. Also we are still keeping an eye out for the hornet men's track & field to move in the national rankings.
