March 5, 2014
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. - Louisiana Tech sprinter Trey Hadnot has qualified for the 2014 NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships the governing body’s Division I Men’s and Women’s Track and Field Committee announced Wednesday.
Hadnot returns to the national stage a year after claiming the bronze medal at the 2013 national meet with a school record time of 20.48. The 2014 championships will be held March 14-15 in Albuquerque, N.M.
The Ruston, La. native is one of only four sprinters in the 16-man field to advance from a school not from a Big 5 conference (ACC, Big Ten, Big 12, Pac-12, SEC). He is also only one of three Conference USA student-athletes to advance to the men’s championship meet in all events along with Mark Jackson and Anthony Rotich of UTEP.
Hadnot qualified for the NCAA Indoor Championships after setting a new league record in the 200m at the C-USA Indoor Championships, running 20.81 to claim gold. He would win a second gold medal at the conference meet as the anchor leg on the Bulldogs’ 4x400m relay.
Florida’s Dedric Dukes leads the 200m field with a time of 20.55 after finishing fifth at the NCAA Indoor Championships last year. In the field of 16 sprinters to qualify, five come from the South Central Region with the other four hailing from Texas A&M.
Hadnot is one of only three finalists from last year’s national championship meet to return to the national stage in 2014. He enters the championship meet 12th out of the 16 competitors.
The 200m semifinal round will be contested on March 14 at 9:05 p.m. CT with the top eight sprinters advancing to the finals race slated for just an hour later at 10:05 p.m. CT.
ESPN3 will stream the meet live on March 14 starting at 6:55 p.m. CT. A tape delay of the championship will air Saturday, March 22 starting at 5:30 p.m. CT on ESPNU.
