Jevonte Ezzard and Courtney Henry were selected as the DU Co-Athletes of the Week for the dates of January 14-20.

Both Dillard University's track and field teams competed in the 2013 Cowboy Indoor Invite on the campus of McNeese State University.  The indoor meet marks the first of two this season for Dillard.

Ezzard finished first place out of 32 runners in the Men's 200 Meter Dash, dismantling the competition as he crossed the finish line with a time of 23.35.  He also came in third place in the Men's 400 Meter Dash, crossing the finish line with a time of 51.69.  A total of 18 runners participated in the latter event.

Henry was brilliant in her preliminaries, finishing third in the Women's 55 Meter Dash with a time of 7.29.  Her stellar top 12 finish qualified her for nationals, and gave her a chance to compete in the finals of the same event just hours later.

Henry was sure not to disappoint as she ran another exceptional race finishing in second place in the Women's 55 Meter Dash with a time of 7.27.

Ezzard was also a part of the Men's 4x400 Meter Relay team that finished in second place with a time of 3:27.02.  The relay team defeated 15 other teams from across the south.
