RV’s Micah Wood, Millville’s Daniel Fenton, Willingboro’s Jayaire King all advance to 400IH finals at MAAC Championships!

The intermediate hurdles final will have a heavy South Jersey flavor Sunday at the MAAC Championships in Lawrenceville.

Three of the top five seeds are South Jersey natives, and all three are freshmen. The eight-runner final is scheduled for 1:50 p.m. Sunday at Rider.

Rancocas Valley grad Micah Wood, a Monmouth freshman, posted the fastest qualifying time, winning the second of two qualifying rounds in 54.53.

Teammate Daniel Fenton, a freshman from Millville, ran 55.50 in the second heat and earned an auto qualifier as the second-place finisher.

And Willingboro graduate Jayaire King, a freshman at St. Peter’s, ran 55.94, the fastest non-auto qualifying time and also advanced.

The top two runners in each of two heats plus the next four-best times qualified for Sunday’s final.

Wood’s PR is 53.14, Fenton’s is 54.04 and King’s is 54.72 with a collegiate-best of 54.77.
