Quanera Hayes Named National DII Athlete of the Week

In News by Garette Hunter

Already at the top of the Division II qualifying list for the indoor 400 meters, Quanera Hayes solidified her position as one of the Division’s top sprinters with a combined three wins at not one but two separate meets over the weekend and the top qualifying time at 200 meters.

Hayes’ weekend started at the slightly oversized track (280 meters) at Eastern Tennessee State Niswonger Invitational on Friday and Saturday, where she won the 200 in 23.99 and the 400 in 54.27. Her 400 meters performance is second among Division II times in 2014 only to her season debut. The times were adjusted for qualification purposes due to the track size.

On Sunday at the Winston-Salem Invitational in North Carolina, she posted the Division’s fastest qualifying time at 200 meters in 24.24 to win by nearly half a second.
