AUSTIN, Texas - The Stephen F. Austin men and women's track and field team continued competition in the Texas Relays Thursday afternoon in Austin. Senior Jocelyn Stevens competed in the 400-meter hurdles, while junior Crystal Chang completed the second and final day of competition in the heptathlon.
Stevens recorded an NCAA regional qualifying time of 1:00.40 in the women's 400-meter hurdles to advance to the finals Saturday afternoon.
Chang entered the day 11th overall with 2,986 points. Chang rallied on the final day of heptathlon competition to finish the meet with 4,972 points to place ninth overall.
