COLLEGE STATION, Texas - Ashhad Agyapong (Trenton, N.J.) finished 10th overall in the 400-meter dash at the USA Junior National Track & Field Championships held this past weekend at the Anderson Track & Field Complex on the campus of Texas A&M.
Agyapong, who just completed his freshman year on the University of Rhode Island track & field team, finished third in his heat with a time of 48.54 seconds. Due to thunderstorms Friday that led to the suspension of competition, the event was run as a timed final.
Agyapong was named the Most Outstanding Rookie at the 2004 Atlantic 10 Indoor Track & Field Championships, winning the 500 dash, taking second in the 200 dash and running a leg on the A-10 champion 4x800 relay team.
