PRINCETON, N.J. (May 12, 2019) – Howard University men’s & women’s track and field wrapped up the weekend at the 2019 IC4A/ECAC Outdoor Championships inside Weaver Stadium, hosted by Princeton University.

In contrast to yesterday’s forecast, Sunday’s jam-packed day consisted of rain throughout the day. Despite the tough weather conditions, several Bison qualified in their respective finals.

On the women’s side, freshman Kennedy Lewis (Atlanta) and sophomore Ameenah Saalih (Willingboro, N.J.) competed in the 100-meter dash where both Bison qualified for the finals, clocking in at 12.04 and 12.11, respectively. In the finals, Lewis placed fifth overall (12.34) while Saalih came in seventh (12.59).

Third-year hurdler Uchechi Onuoha (Yardly, Pa.) participated in the women’s 100-meter hurdles and 400-meter hurdles where she reached the finals in both events. Furthermore, the Pennsylvania native took eighth in the 400-meter hurdles (1:03.14).

For the men, senior Kenneth Chigbue (Bowie, Md.) competed in his final race for the Bison. Chigbue placed sixth in the 200-meter dash, recording a 21.78 mark.
