Maryland’s track and field teams successfully concluded its competition at the Big Ten Outdoor Track and Field Championship Meet in Minneapolis on Sunday.

“Today was a strong finish to the championships with podium performances and an overall team effort,” head coach Andrew Valmon said in a release Sunday. “Now we will continue to charge forward with several individuals moving to NCAA preliminary rounds.”

The women’s side was led by the 4x100 team of freshman Jada Ellis, junior Kattiana Ealy-Pulido, junior Ariana Ealy-Pulido and senior Jaida Smith, which jolted to a 45.76-second finish. The time earned eighth place and is now the fourth-fastest in program history for this event.

Additionally, freshman Katie Altieri made her debut in the 5K of the Big Ten Championship.

On the other hand, the men’s team was led by junior Caleb Dean, who jumped to a 51.27-second finish in the 400 hurdles. Dean earned second place in the event, which earned him All-Big Ten honors.

In the men’s 4x100 meter relay, Maryland’s quartet of Dean, sophomore Kamari Trotz, junior Joseph Ewan and senior Cameron Vereen finished in 40 seconds, earning fourth place and their fastest time of the season.

The NCAA East Prelims will be held in Indianapolis from May 26 to May 28.
