MIRAMAR, Fla. – Rising-sophomore Cory Gaither placed seventh at the USATF U20 Outdoor Championship Sunday at Ansin Sports Complex.

Gaither competed in the 400-meter hurdles and took seventh in the finals with a time of 53.68 seconds. The Statesville, N.C., native advanced through Saturday’s preliminary heats after a disqualification and made the most of his opportunity with a time improvement from his prelim mark.

Gaither was stellar on the track throughout his freshman campaign, placing sixth overall at the Atlantic 10 Championship in both the 400m and 110m hurdles. 

On Friday, classmate Colin Ross also competed for the ‘Cats in the 10,000-meter run, but was unable to finish in the less than ideal conditions.
