Athanas Kioko makes another trip to Eugene Oregon this week and will be joined by another Campbell track team runner.
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — Dorcus Ewoi of Campbell booked her first ticket to the NCAA Track and Field Championships after qualifying in the women’s 800-meter run Saturday, May 28 at the Robert C. Haugh Complex.
Ewoi placed fourth in her heat at the NCAA East Preliminaries, but held the ninth-fastest time overall to qualify for nationals. Her time of 2 minutes, 4.08 seconds in the event improved her own school- and Big South-record score.
She will join Athanas Kioko as the two representatives from Campbell in Eugene, Oregon for the NCAA Championships, set for June 8 through 11.
Kioko qualified for his second event at this year's nationals as the Campbell men wrapped up its final day of the NCAA East Prelims on May 27.
The 2021 Big South Conference Men’s Runner of the Year, who set school records with third-place finishes at both the track and field and cross country national events, booked another trip to the NCAA Championships in the men’s 5,000. He placed second in his heat with a time of 13:38.55.
Two days prior, Kioko qualified for nationals in the 10,000 by finishing first and setting a facility record with a time of 28:25.69.
Campbell’s C.J. McBride missed out on qualifying for nationals after he was unable to clear 7 feet, 2 inches in the men’s high jump, finishing tied for 22nd overall.
