XU's Quincy runs 3rd in 400 at Rhodes Invitational
MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Kayla Quincy's third-place finish in the women's 400-meter dash was the Saturday highlight for Xavier University of Louisiana in the Rhodes Invitational track and field meet.
Quincy's time of 58.13 seconds matches the second-fastest in this event by an XU woman since SiMon Franklin's school-record performance of 56.74 at the 2013 Gulf Coast Athletic Conference Championships.
The Gold Nuggets also got top-10 individual performances from Tylor Row in the women's 100 hurdles (fifth in 16.61), Destini Thomas in the women's 100 (10th in 12.72) and Clarke Allen in the women's 200 (10th in 26.05). For the XU men, Keairez Coleman was seventh in the long jump (6.07 meters/19 feet, 11 inches), and Christopher Kennie was eighth (6.04 meters/19-9 3/4).
There was no team scoring in the meet, which was Xavier's second of the outdoor season. The Nuggets and Gold Rush will compete Friday and Saturday in the Louisiana Classics at Lafayette, La.
