Horsley Heads to Eugene in 200 Meters as NCAA Regionals Wrap

AUSTIN, Texas - Cal State Northridge sprinter Carl Horsley wrapped up a memorable weekend Saturday as he advanced to the NCAA Outdoor Championships in his second event as competition concluded at the NCAA West Preliminary at Mike A. Myers Stadium.

Having already advanced to the NCAA Championships in Eugene, Ore. (June 5-8) in the 100 meters, the junior from Oakland, added to 200 meters to his schedule on Saturday. Horsley ran a school record 20.73 in the opening round of the 200 on Friday before advancing to Eugene with an eighth-place finish (20.79) on Saturday.

Horsley wound up breaking a pair of 15-year old school records in Austin, snapping Joe Criner's records in both the 100 and 200 meters.

The Matador 4x100 relay, which featured Derrick Harris, Horsley, Darquis Rucker and Nicholas DiMartino, wound up 17th in a time of 40.84. The women's 4x100 (Le'Shel Vines, Hafsatu Kamara, Lexis Lambert and Marie Veale) Big West champions, also finished just out of a qualifying spot in a time of 45.39. Only the top-12 relay teams advance to Eugene as CSUN was 17th.

Donovan Toban, who also competed in the long jump, wrapped up the field events for the CSUN men finishing 41st in the triple jump. Toban posted a best of 46-10.25 (14.28) on his third and final attempt.
