LOUISVILLE, Ky. -
The University of Louisville track and field teams wrapped up the Bellarmine Classic on Saturday evening in Louisville at Owsley B. Frazier Stadium with four event titles.
Junior Margret Harris, who has already qualified for BIG EAST Championships in the 100m, 200m and 400m events, added a fourth qualifying mark with a long jump of 5.76m/18-10.75. Earlier in the day, the Texas native posted a winning time of 11.99 in the 100m.
Freshmen Andrew Stewart and Calvin Arsenault also registered victories in their respective running events. Stewart clocked a winning time of 1:52.61 in the 800m, while Arsenault, who set the school record in the 110m hurdles last weekend, won the event on Saturday.
The lone field event victory for the Cardinals came from Seon Powell, as he took first in the long jump behind a leap of 7.19m/23-7.25.
Other notable performances included Kevin Jackson, who had a fourth-place showing in the pole vault behind a season-best 4.58m/15-0.25, and Ariel Briggs, who placed second in the 5,000m.
