UMES Outdoor Track and Field Star Runs with the Best

Posted:

EUGENE, Ore.- UMES' Gayon Evans ran with the nation’s best sprinters at the 2014 NCAA Championships in the final race of her college career.

She posted a time of 23.93, a time not far behind first place winner Jenna Prandini.

After missing the cut to the finals by .66 of a second, Evans finished 21st overall.

Evans best time was in the 100-meter dash where she finished 19th.

Although her time wasn’t the best of the season, she posted six faster times prior to her final race. In the MEAC Championships she timed in at 23.08. If that had been her time for the NCAA Championship, she would have qualified for the finals.

She performed better than other conference runners such as Tristie Johnson who finished 22nd with a score of 24.12. LSU’s Toshika Sylvester placed 23rd and Dezerea Bryant, of Kentucky, followed Tristie’s score.

Le’ Quisha Parker had a time of 23.85 and placed 20th overall.

In the entire 13-14 campaign, Evans ran the top seven times in the event for UMES.

On Thursday night, Evans ran in the first heat in lane number two, and took seventh place over Johnson. The night before, Johnson bested her by one place in the 100-meter dash.

The race completed the season for UMES Athletics. Evans was the last athlete still competing.
