Deptford graduate Mar-Quel Davis, a sophomore at Bloomfield, ran a PR 6.92 in the 60-meter dash at the Last Chance Invite at the 168th Street Armory Friday afternoon.
According to the DirectAthletics database, this was Davis’s first race of the year and actually his first open race since the CACC Championships in Lakewood last May, when he won the 100 in 10.69 and 200 in 21.72 and anchored the winning 4-by-100 relay team.
According to the database, he ran 7.10 in his only previous collegiate indoor race, in January of 2019 on the same track.
Davis’s 6.92 is No. 4 in the NCAA Division 2 East Region and only 6-100ths of a second behind regional leader Noah Roach of Georgian Court, who ran 6.86 last month.
Bloomfield does not list school records on its web site.
But the annual performance lists on the TFRRS site do not show a faster time for 60 meters for a Bloomfield sprinter.
Davis ran 6.96 in the trials Friday before the 6.92 in the finals. He was the first collegiate finisher in the race, finishing behind four post-collegiates.
At Deptford, Davis ran 10.65 and 21.57 and medaled in the 55 and 100 at the Meet of Champions.
