Stewart ties 110m hurdles school record in advancing to NCAA final
June 9, 2011
DES MOINES - University of Texas sophomore Keiron Stewart tied his 110m hurdles school record of 13.44 to automatically advance to the final on day two of the 2011 NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships. The rest of the competition for the day was suspended due to severe weather in the area. Texas still has the 4x400m relay to complete, along with the decathlon and long jump.
Stewart won the third heat of the semifinals in 13.44, tying the Texas record that he set earlier this season at the UT/Arkansas/UCLA tri-meet. He will automatically earn First Team All-America status for advancing to the final and will be looking to improve upon his seventh place finish from 2010.
Currently, sophomore Marquise Goodwin is in fourth in the long jump with his leap of 26-9.25 (8.16m) and has one jump remaining. The leader, Florida State's Ngonidzashe Makusha, sits at 27-6.75 (8.40m).
