Hicks, Maloney Advance to Saturday’s Quarterfinal Round

May 27, 2016

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Jermey Hicks wanted to be busy Saturday and he made sure he would be with his performance at the NCAA East Preliminary Championships Friday. After running an advancing mark in Friday’s 200m opening round, Hicks will compete in two quarterfinal races Saturday evening at Hodges Stadium in Jacksonville.

The junior had already advanced to the quarterfinal round in the 100m dash after Monday’s performance but he added the 200m quarterfinals to his schedule as he clocked 20.83 in the opening round. Hicks finished 19th overall, running 0.03 seconds faster than LSU’s Jaron Flournoy.

Tramaine Maloney also advanced the quarterfinal round with a 15th place finish in the 110m hurdles opening round as he ran 14.02.

Both Hicks and Maloney automatically advanced by finishing in the top three in their heat. They both look to finish in the top 12 and advance to the NCAA Championships in Eugene, Oregon, something teammate Mia Adams accomplished in the long jump Thursday.

In other action late Friday, Chloe Lautric failed to record a mark in the high jump as her season drew to a close.
