Track: Stewart hurdles toward NCAA meet

Cal senior Ray Stewart ran 13.81 in his first-round heat of the 110-meter high hurdles on Friday, advancing to Saturday’s second round at the NCAA West Preliminary meet.

Stewart, from James Logan HS and Merritt College, had the fourth-fastest time of the day. He must finish among the top 12 on Saturday to advance to the June 5-8 NCAA Championships in Eugene, Ore.

Due to bad weather, Friday’s meet at Austin, Texas, was running about three hours behind schedule.

    Sorry to post this a second time, but to stay current:

    At the CIF Southern Section Master tournament, our incoming freshman Khalfani ran:

    – a 10.22 100 meter (winning the race, tops in California, and breaking a 28-year old Southern Section record)

    – a 20.79 200 meter (winning the race, tops in California)

    – anchoring the 4×100 to qualify for State prelims (after a terrible hand-off between the first and second legs, KM ran down two guys to get the team to qualify)
