Eastern track ends on high note


May 15, 2019

CANYON, Texas — The Eastern New Mexico track and field team’s regular season ended in style Sunday, thanks largely to junior sprinter Kandice Miles.

At the West Texas A&M Last Chance meet in Canyon, Miles won three events to lead Eastern.

The Houston product was first to cross the finish line in both the 100- and 200-meter dashes while also leading the ENMU women’s 4x100-meter relay team — including Maijah Mathis, Lateria Slaughter and Danee Bustos — to victory.

The Greyhounds relay team opened the meet on a high note, edging out West Texas A&M with a time of 45.95 to win the first event of the day.

Miles picked up her second win in the 100-meter dash as her time of 11.97 was good enough to take the event by 0.08 seconds. Mathis brought home fourth with a time of 12.16 while Slaughter came in seventh after crossing the finish line in 12.53.

In the 200, Miles won her third event of the day with a time of 24.32, narrowly beating out WTAMU’s Tianna McKinney by a 0.02 second margin. In the final individual event of her Greyhounds career, Bustos took third after crossing the line in 24.84, and Mathis finished fourth with a 25.95 time.

As of Tuesday afternoon, the Greyhounds were waiting to see who will be selected to compete at next week’s NCAA Division II Outdoor Track and Field Championships, hosted by Texas A&M-Kingsville.
