JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. – Freshman standout Caleb Anthony continued his stellar rookie campaign on Friday when he advanced to the finals of the 60-meter hurdles at the NAIA Indoor Track and Field Championships.


Anthony won his heat in the semifinals with a time of 8.14 and will enter Saturday's finals with the third fastest semifinal time. The Centerville, Ohio native entered the championships as the two seed and will be looking to dethrone the defending national champion in the event in Taylor Killings from Marian.


A pair of Taylor seniors also competed on Friday with Harry Dantona competing in the weight throw and Leslie Romer racing in the 60-meter dash.


Dantona posted a mark of 16.52 meters in the weight throw to finish in 18th place in his first national championship appearance.


Romer clocked a time of 6.98 in the semifinals of the 60-meter dash to finish in 18th place. An All-American in the 60-meter and 200-meter last season will look to finish his career in stellar fashion in the outdoor season.


A total of four Trojans will compete during the final day of the championships on Saturday. Anthony will lead off the day in the finals of the 60-meter hurdles at 12:55 pm. Freshman Jonathan DeHaan will compete in the pole vault at 1:15 pm followed by Joseph Beamish racing in the finals of the 3,000-meters at 3:00 pm.
