The St. Mary’s College of Maryland men’s outdoor track & field team finished 14th at the 19-team Johns Hopkins University/Loyola University Maryland Invitational on April 23. Douge was part of two school records and collected three top-20 finishes.

Douge anchored the ninth-place 4x100m relay, which set a school-record time of 45.50. That time currently ranks 27th in the Mid-Atlantic Region and fifth in the C2C.

The 5-8 sprinter then claimed an 11th-place finish in the 100m after clocking an 11.21w (2.4) while taking 20th in the 200m with a school-record time of 22.79. Both marks rank fifth in the league and 24th in the region.

St. Mary’s College will be idle until next weekend, Saturday-Sunday, May 6-7, when the Seahawks compete at the 2022 C2C Outdoor Track & Field Championships at Christopher Newport University in Newport News, Va.
