Dameus, Five Others, Vie For Spot in NCAA Championship

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Over the weekend, six members of the Tennessee State track and field teams had solid outings in the 2014 NCAA Division I Outdoor Track & Field Championships as the University of North Florida.

Sophomore Clairwin Dameus came the closest to making the NCAA Championship in the long jump after finishing 15th with a hop of 6.11 meters. Although she needed to be in at least 12th, Dameus will still compete in the heptathlon in Eugene, Ore. on June 11-14.

Dameus then teamed with Amber Hughes, Ashontae Jackson and Quanisha Sales to post a 45.08 second time in the 4x100 meter relay which earned the Tigerbelles 17th place.

Hughes and Sales also competed in solo events in Fla., with Hughes clocking a 13.60 in the 100-meter hurdles and Sales running the 200-meter dash in 24.58 seconds.

Jerome Henderson of the Flying Tigers ran a time of 10.90 in the 100-meter dash while Daryl Rice leapt 2.00 meters in the men’s high jump.
