Senior Shane Brathwaite equaled his season-best time of 7.77 to capture a win in the finals of the men's 60 meter hurdles. The time currently ranks No. 15 in the country.
In the women's long jump senior transfer Precious Nwokey captured a win with a jump of 19'-6.00". The jump was her second best of the season.
Jackson also captured a win with a time of 54.06 in the women's 400 meter dash. The time was her second-best performance of the season.
Both the men's and women's teams will await the selections to the national indoor meet which are set to be announced by the NCAA Monday.
