GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Just one day after graduating from Campbell University, CU high jumpers Shenelle McKay and Davian Rhodes each posted regionally ranked marks Sunday afternoon at the Aggie Last Chance Invitational. McKay cleared a season-best mark of 1.73m, which currently ranks T-37 on the TFRRS East Regional Qualifying List. Rhodes was able to clear 2.09m, good for a T-42 ranking in the region. If these marks stay inside the top-48 following the end of the season, both athletes will qualify for the NCAA East Preliminary Round.

Campbell started the meet with the men's long jump as Alize Graham represented CU. The junior ended his season with a mark of 6.67m to place 16th at the meet. Graham's season-best jump of 7.36m ranks T-74 on the regional qualifying list.

Next was the men's 1500m, where Kelvin Kirui placed first overall with a time of 3:50.45. Kirui's season-best mark of 3:47.28, set just two days ago at the Big South Outdoor Championships, sits 79th in the region.

Lilla Juhasz competed in the women's 100m hurdles. Her best time of the day came in the preliminary round, where the Hungary native posted a mark of 13.97. Juhasz's season-best time of 13.56 is currently on the outside-looking-in with a T-50 ranking in the region.

Campbell freshmen Janai Scott and Isis Brooks represented the Camels in the women's 100m dash prelims. Brooks posted the second-fastest time of her career with a mark of 11.96, just .01 seconds away from qualifying for the final. Scott went sub-12 for the sixth time in her young career with a time of 11.99 in the preliminary round.

Racheal Brown competed in the women's 400m dash, posting a time of 57.58 to place 17th overall at the meet. On the men's side, Ka'Deem Wynn ran the 400m with a mark of 49.99, going sub-50 for the sixth time this season.

Tatiana Wolfe placed fourth overall in the women's 400m hurdles, finishing with a time of 1:01.57. The St. Catherine, Jamaica native was coming off a season-best 59.93 performance at the Big South Outdoor Championships that earned her all-conference honors and a bronze medal.

Campbell's final running event was the women's 200m dash, where Brooks and Scott competed for CU. Scott placed 12th overall with a mark of 24.46, while Brooks finished in 24.70 to wrap up performances at the meet.

Up next, Campbell will await final regional seedings for the 2017 NCAA East Preliminary Round, set for May 25-27 at the University of Kentucky Outdoor Track & Field Facility in Lexington, Ky. If the current standings hold, CU will send eight athletes to the regional event. For the most up-to-date information on Campbell track & field, follow @GoCamelsRun on Twitter.
