PITTSBURGH—Nine members of the University of Pittsburgh men’s track and field team earned a berth in the 2012 NCAA Outdoor East Regionals in Jacksonville, Fla. held at the University of North Florida May 24-26.

Making his third appearance at the NCAA East regional meet, senior Jermaine Lowery is seeded second in the 400-meter hurdles and hopes to make a return trip to the NCAA Championships, June 6-9 in Des Moines, Iowa. He finished seventh in the regional meet last year (50.66).

Lowery is coming off a Big East Championship crown in the 400-meter hurdles (50.25) and is currently ranked No. 8 nationally. Senior Jerome Lowery will also run in the 400-meter hurdles.

“I expect to see us have some national qualifiers,” Pitt head coach Alonzo Webb said. “Last year Jermaine ran a great race at this meet and I hope that continues this year.”

Fresh off an impressive performance at the IC4A Championships and a gold-medal performance at the Big East Championships in the 100-meter dash, senior Antony Hobwana is seeded No. 22 in the 100-meters.

Junior Tashaun Hill is set to compete in the 110-meter hurdles in his third-career regional appearance, while sophomores Reginald Steele IV and Micah Murray garnered their second consecutive berths. Murray is seeded 27th in the 400-meters.
