PITTSBURG, Kansas — Eastern New Mexico sophomore Danee Bustos ended her Friday as a second-team All-American, and teammate Marcus Parker gave himself a chance for national honors on Saturday during the first day of the NCAA Division II indoor track and field championships.

Bustos finished in 12th place in the 200-meter, finishing just ahead of Minnesota State's Afure Adah at 24.8 seconds.

Parker, also a sophomore, posted the fifth-best time in both the 60-meter and 200-meter events to move on to the final round. He ran the 60-meter in 6.71 seconds to place second in his heat, and won his 200-meter heat at 21.36 seconds.

Parker will be joined on Saturday by Kenneth Lloyd, who's scheduled to compete in the high jump.
