The only men’s entry was Tevin Hester, who cruised to first in his prelim with a time of 6.65.

Hester followed suit in the 200, running 21.23, and was supported by fellow qualifiers for Saturday’s final in Elijah Britton (21.49) and Michael Cheeks (21.60). The women’s 200 also yielded multiple qualifiers in Hadley (24.02) and Deja Parrish (24.23).
