TCU track and field

TCU qualified athletes in five more events for the NCAA Championships at the NCAA West Prelims on Saturday night in Austin.

The men’s 4x100 relay of Cameron Echols-Luper, Sam Watts, Ronnie Baker and Kolby Listenbee finished second with a time of 39.1.

“With the 4x100, we had some issues,” coach Daryl Anderson said. “A team got in our way and then UTA was in our heat and they got knocked down. But we still ran 39.1 and finished with the third fastest time.”

Brianna McGhee qualified by finishing the 100-meter hurdles in 13.24 seconds. She broke the school record set by Larissa Matthew, who ran a 13.26 in 2010.

Scotty Newton qualified in the men’s triple jump with a 50-10 3/4. Watts also qualified in the 200-meter dash with a 20.85. The men’s 4x400 relay of Lavon Collins, Joshua Washington, Watts and Baker qualified with a 3:06.22.
