An impressive 16 Panthers qualified for the IC4As, including seniors Antony Hobwana and Jermaine Lowery, who both took home individual gold medals at the Big East Championships in the 100-meter dash and 400-meter hurdles, respectively, last weekend.
Hobwana and Lowery, along with sophomore Micah Murray and senior Jerome Lowery recorded a first-place finish in the 1,600-meter relay at the Big East Championship with a mark of 3:08.09.
“We’re definitely looking for a great showing this weekend,” Jermaine Lowery said. “Personally, I’m hoping to set another personal record in the 400-meter hurdles and to go out there and win is something I hope to do.”
Additionally, the 400-meter relay team of Hobwana, Murray, freshman Joshua Thompson and sophomore Reginald Steele IV captured first with a time of 40.42.
Jermaine Lowery looks to improve upon his second-place performance in the 400-meter hurdles at the IC4A Championships last year (51.09).
Meanwhile, Steele IV placed eighth in the long jump last season (seven meters) and junior Dan Kwiatkowsk
