DES MOINES, Iowa — Day two at the NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championships was postponed late Thursday night. The missed events – including the conclusion of the men’s long jump that Mike Fout – will resume Friday.
Prior to the postponement, Maurice Mitchell, who moved on in the 100m dash and 4x100m relay, made it a perfect three-for-three in qualifying as he won the second heat of the men’s 200m dash with a 20.39 on day two.
His teammate, Brandon Byram, then turned on the afterburners in the final 50 meters and advanced as well with a heat-three second-place finish on a time of 20.57.
Hannah Brooks was the lone Seminole to perform on the women’s side and she didn’t disappoint. Brooks advanced to Saturday’s final with a fifth-place finish in the first heat on a time of 4:18.94.
