NCAA DIVISION II OUTDOOR TRACK & FIELD CHAMPIONSHIPS – DAY 1
4x100 RELAY QUALIFIES FOR FINALS
For the second consecutive year, Northwood will have a men's 4x100 meter relay in the finals.
The quartet of sophomores Austin Hamlet and Mason Phillips, senior Rami Gharsalli and freshman Andrew Davis ran 40.73 seconds to finish second in their heat to automatically qualify for finals. They will go into Saturday's final with the fifth-fastest time.
This will be Northwood's second First-Team All-American finish in program history.
PHILLIPS THROUGH TO 100 FINALS
In the men's 100 meters, Phillips ran an all-conditions personal best of 10.29 seconds to qualify for the event finals. His time placed him third in his heat and will have the fourth-fastest time going into Saturday's final. Although a personal best for the school record holder, the time does not break his school record due to being a wind-aided time (+4.1).
Phillips will become Northwood's first All-American in the 100 meters pending completion of the finals.
