TLU’s Brown places third in indoor 200 at Washington's Husky Classic
(Seattle) - Texas Lutheran senior Marquis Brown raced Friday at the University of Washington's Husky Classic and registered a third-place finish out of a 31-athlete field filled with predominantly NCAA Division I runners.
Brown crossed the line third in his heat with a time of 21.90 seconds. Brown was in the fastest 200 heat of the day.
Mobolade Ajomale of Academy of Art and Duane McClurkin of Colorado went 1-2 in the 200 with times of 21.37 and 21.80.
"Marquis ran well in the 200," said Darlene Holland, TLU's head coach for men's and women's indoor/outdoor track & field. "He was in an outside lane of the fast heat and had a great race.
"It's his fastest ever time indoors in that event and earned him third place overall in the meet. The winner of the event was also in his heat and is the reigning 200 meter champion from NCAA Division II."
The time of 21.90 is Brown's fastest non-converted indoor 200 time. His time from the Middlebury College indoor meet earlier this season has been converted to 21.88. That time currently ranks 15th in NCAA DIII.
Brown was scheduled to run the indoor 400 Saturday at the Husky Classic. Brown did not race in the 400 after feeling less than 100 percent healthy.
"Rather than risk an injury, he made the ultimate decision that it would be best not to risk racing on it," said Holland.
Brown and the Bulldogs are scheduled to compete this Friday at the Texas Tech Matador Classic in Lubbock, Texas.
