Penn State Harrisburg track duo makes NCAAs

Posted

A pair of Penn State Harrisburg student-athletes, Jalil Clayton and Rae Rae Taylor, have qualified for the NCAA Division III Indoor Track & Field Championships on Friday and Saturday at the Reggie Lewis Track and Athletic Center in Boston.

Clayton, a senior from Chester, will compete in the men’s 60-meter hurdles after posting the 13th-best time in the nation in the event at 8.15 seconds earlier this season. He recently won Eastern College Athletic Conference and Capital Athletic Conference championships in the event. Thanks to his outstanding effort, he was named the CAC Men's Indoor Athlete of the Year last month.

Taylor's total of 3,353 total points in the women's pentathlon was good enough to rank 17th in the country and earn her a spot in the NCAA event. The sophomore from Pottstown won the ECAC championship in the pentathlon last weekend after winning CAC titles in the long and triple jump events last month.

Thanks to her stellar performance, she was named the CAC Women's Indoor Athlete of the Year three weeks ago.
