Simon, Evans Named UMES PRMC Athletes of the Week

By Jordan Ballard

PRINCESS ANNE, Md.- Junior track & field thrower Dillon Simon (Pottersville, Roseau, Dominica) and senior sprinter Gayon Evans (Clarendon, Jamaica) were named the University of Maryland Eastern Shore Peninsula Regional Medical Center Athletes of the Week for the week ending on June 3.

Officials said both Simon and Evan are ranked first and second in the most times awarded for this season, with Evans being named eight times and Simon being named nine times.

Simon wrapped up his junior season at the NCAA Preliminaries in Jacksonville, Fla. Officials said that participating in the shot put and the discus, Dillon shined in the discus, narrowly missing the cut to Oregon with a 14th place finish.

Still, his throw in the discus reformed a school record with a 56.92 meter throw. The reach of his toss beat his previous record of 56.48 meters at the Morgan Legacy last past April.

Evans, the solitary Lady Hawk to score high enough for the Preliminaries, became the only Hawk to attain the honor of moving on to Oregon for the NCAA Championships.

 In the 100 meter dash, Evans ranked 11th in the premier round on Thursday and was able to qualify with a 12th place finish out of 12 total slots for the semifinals held in Oregon.

Her time of 11.49 seconds in the quarterfinal was a season record. Gayon performed even better in the 200 meter dash and finished fifth in the first round with a time of 23.33 seconds, and lead with a 23.56 second, seventh place time.

Semifinals in the women’s 100 and 200 meter dashes at the NCAA Championships are held on June 11 and 12, with finals coming up on June 13 and 14.
