Kansas Relays Victory for Smith in the 110 Hurdles
April 23, 2013
Senior Cedrique Smith became a Kansas Relays Champion this past Saturday with a victory in the college/university/open division of the 110m hurdles. The Men's 110m Hurdle field consisted of 31 of some of the top NCAA D1 and D2, NAIA and Unattached athletes from across the country.
On Friday, Smith finished second in his heat with a 14.37 behind Keith Hopkins (14.33) of the Wildcat Track Club. Although Smith was second in his heat, his time was the third fastest over all behind Hopkins and Sabiel Anderson's 14.23 of NCAA D2 powerhouse Lincoln University. With the Kansas Relays taking the heat winner and the next two fastest times, Smith would be seeded in lane 1 for the finals on Saturday.
