The University of Iowa track team continues to do well on a national level at the 2006 Drake Relays this weekend. Two men medaled in their respective field events, while two more Hawkeyes qualified for the finals in running events.
Sophomore Shane Maier placed second in the shot put with 59-11.25 and fellow sophomore Matty Gorman took the bronze medal with a leap of 24-8.5. Both are qualified for the NCAA Regional meet later in May.
Junior Tiffany Johnson, who holds the school record in the 100-meter hurdles, qualified in that event with the third-fastest time in the preliminaries (13.99). Freshman David Chaplin ran a 10.80 in the 100 meters to qualify for the finals Saturday afternoon.
