Lake Erie College track athletes qualify for NCAA Outdoor Championships
Lake Erie College track athletes, Chris Burrows (Trotwood, Ohio/Trotwood Madison) and Ethan Snyder (Salesville, Ohio/Buckeye Trail) will compete in the men’s 200-meter dash and 400-meter hurdle race, respectively, on May 27 in Charlotte, N.C.
Burrows is seeded 12th in the 200-meters with his qualifying time of 21.18 seconds set two weeks ago at Indiana University. This time, which is a school record, is tied for the 11th fastest time in the country. Burrows just missed qualifying for the 100-meters, with his best time of 10.63 being less than 0.1 seconds off the cutline.
Snyder also had the 11th fastest time in his event, the 400-meter hurdles, and is seeded 11th in that race. He had earlier qualified provisionally with a time of 53.09 seconds, but then ran 52.54 at Georgia Tech to guarantee him a spot.
The NCAA Championships will be held at the Irwin Bell Track Complex at Johnson C. Smith University in Charlotte May 27-29. The preliminary heats for the 400 hurdles will be held Thursday and the 200-meter dash is on Friday with finals for both events on Saturday.
