JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Louisiana Tech sprinter Jermey Hicks fell short of advancing to the NCAA Championships in a pair of races, completing his season with a 20th place finish in the 200m at the NCAA East Preliminary Championships at Hodges Stadium in Jacksonville Saturday evening.

Hicks ran 20.99 to finish 20th in the quarterfinal round of the 200m dash, beating LSU’s Tremayne Acy by almost a full second in the final race of his junior season.

Earlier, Hicks had ran 10.46 to finish 16th in the 100m quarterfinal round. The top 12 finishers in the quarterfinal round advance to the semifinals at the NCAA Championships in Eugene, Oregon. In the 100m, Hicks edged North Carolina A&T’s Rodney Rowe by 0.007 seconds.
