Burrows Wins 200, Three Provisional Marks for Hurdles at Sea Ray Relays

PAINESVILLE, OHIO – Sophomore Chris Burrows (Trotwood, Ohio/Trotwood) won the men's 200-meter dash and the Lake Erie College men's track and field team had three top-14 and provisionally qualifying performances in the 400-meter hurdles on Friday (April 15) at the 45th Annual Sea Ray Relays hosted by the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, Tenn.

Burrows, an 2010 All-American in the event, bested the field with a school-record time of 20.90 seconds. It was his first time competing in the 200-meters outdoor after earning All-American honors during the indoor season.  He also finished second in the 100-meter dash – an event he has previously provisionally qualified for- with a time of 10.52.

In the 400-meter hurdles, the trio of sophomores Ethan Snyder (Salesville, Ohio/Buckeye Trail), Quinton Harley (Rochester, N.Y./Edison Tech) and Isaac Snyder (Salesville, Ohio/Buckeye Trail) all hit provisional qualifying standards.  Ethan Snyder had the best overall finish in the event, placing sixth in 52.48 seconds while Harley was 12th at 53.20 and Isaac Snyder 14th at 53.79.

Harley also set a school record in the 110-meter hurdles, crossing the finish line in 15.09 seconds.

The rest of the Storm track and field teams will be in High Point, N.C. for the Vertklasse Invitational on Saturday, April 16, hosted by High Point University.
