T&F stars head to Canada (Montgomery & Igbokwe 1st in 4x400, Burke 3rd in 4x100, Burrell 3rd in 100m)
Technically 5 with the latest transfer.
Recent alum Cameron Burrell and rising senior Kahmari Montgomery will represent the United States at the NACAC Championships, while Jared Kerr will compete for the host-country Canada and Mario Burke will wear Barbados’ colors.
Mario just missed making it to the final; Cam made it and finished 3rd:
Burrell ran the fifth-fastest overall time in the 100-meter dash semifinals, when he crossed the line second in his heat at 10.16. Just over an hour later, Burrell returned for the final, where the NCAA Champion in the event sprinted down the track in 10.12 to cross the line third.
Rising-senior Mario Burke also competed in the semifinals of the 100, where he donned the colors of his home country of Barbados. Burke ran 10.29 in the second heat to finish fourth in the race and ninth overall.
New transfer, Igbokwe, also finished 1st in the 4x400 running the 2nd leg of the race that Montgomery anchored.
Rising-senior Kahmari Montgomery saved the best for last Sunday, anchoring Team USA to a gold medal in the 4x400-meter relay in the meet’s final race. Montgomery, who won the United States Championship in the 400-meter dash earlier this season, split 45 seconds on the final leg to help USA run 3:00.60 to take the win.
Houston competitors picked up their second medal of the championships, when Mario Burke and team Barbados claimed the silver in the 4x100-meter relay. Burke carried the second leg of the 400-meter relay, helping lead the team to a time of 38.69.
