Blue Demons Sprint Out to Fast Start on Saturday
Jan. 12, 2013
MADISON, Wis. - DePaul sprinters got the new year off to a fast start Saturday at the Badger Classic Track Meet.
Jordon Vaughn won the men's 60-meter dash with a BIG EAST Conference qualifying time of 6.83 seconds that equals a school record. Teammate Tonderai Tomu was third in the race with a BIG EAST qualifying time of 7.04.
In the men's 200m dash, freshman Brandon Threats ran a BIG EAST qualifying time of 22.69 seconds. Ayesha Ewing ran a season-best 7.78 seconds in winning the women's 60m dash and just missed on a BIG EAST qualifying time.
DePaul track and field coach Dave Dopek was pleased with his team's performance.
"I thought we had a good meet, and we really came out strong in the 60 meters," Dopek said. "Our throwers---especially Anthony Babicz and Jazmyne Durrah---did well.
"This was the first meet where we brought pretty much the entire team. It was good to get the rust off following our break."
The Blue Demons compete in the Notre Dame Opener next Saturday at Notre Dame.
