Harrison, Hayes, Houston And Engels Make USATF World Indoor Roster

North Carolina will send 4 former stars to the USATF World Indoor Championships in Birmingham, UK in Keni Harrison (Clayton), Scott Houston (Northwest Guilford), Quanera Hayes (Gray's Creek) and Craig Engels (Reagan).

In order to qualify for the World Indoor Championships you must hit the respective World 'A' Standard in your respected event, plus finish top 2 at USATF Indoor Nationals last week in Alburquerque, New Mexico.

Harrison took 2nd in the 60m Hurdles running  7.72 in the finals .02 behind winner Sharika Nelvis.

Houston won a thrilling Men's Pole Vault where he beat favorite Sam Kendricks and jumped 19-1.50 to win the National Title.

Hayes took 3rd in a loaded Women's 400 final where 6 of the top runners in the world currently faced off.  3rd causes Hayes to miss running the open 400 at World by one spot, but secures a spot on the 4x400m Relay.

Engels took 3rd place in the 1500m Finals behind Paul Chelimo and Ben Blankenship, but with winner Chelimo not having the World 'A' Standard in the 1500 it bumps Engels onto Team USA.
