Sophomore Javondii Myers qualified for the NAIA indoor track and field national championship meet in the high jump to highlight Carlow’s performance at the SPIRE Mid West Indoor Track and Field Open, in Geneva, Ohio, on Saturday, Jan. 27.

Myers, a native of Columbia, S.C., took first place in the field of 29 jumpers by clearing a height of 6’7”. The jump hit the NAIA National “A” standard, and moved Myers to fifth in the NAIA national rankings.

Other highlights for the Carlow men’s team included strong outings by Cameron Short (FR/West Mifflin, Pa.), Matt Cannon (FR/Monongahela, Pa.), and Christopher Woodley (JR/Northern Cambria, Pa.).

Short ran 1:28.58 to finish 21st of 37 runners in the 600-meter run.

Cannon finished 61st out of 100 runners in the 200-meter dash, running 24.02.
