(Lafayette, La.) With a time of 49.25, senior runner and 3-time NAIA All-American Jevonte Ezzard (SR/College Park, GA) finished in third place in the men's 400 meter dash out of 19 runners at the 2015 Louisiana Classic. The meet was held at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette at the Cajuns Track and Soccer Facility.
"It was an honor to run against such good competition at this meet," said Ezzard, who is often called "Bebop" by his peers. "But we've got to do a better job overall as a unit not only in the 4x1 or 4x4 but overall as a team, and not just our men but our ladies too."
Ezzard was also a part of the men's 4x100 meter relay team that finished fifth overall out of eight teams with a time of 42.32. Seniors Tobyus Simmons (SR/Chattanooga, TN), Kermit Buggage (SR/New Orleans, LA) and freshman Lindsey Taylor (FR/Houston, TX) rounded out the relay squad for Dillard.
Buggage and Simmons finished ninth and tenth out of 34 runners in the men's 100 meter dash with times of 11.05 and 11.06 respectively.
On Thursday, March 26, both Bleu Devils & Lady Bleu Devils track and field teams plan to travel to Austin for the colossal Texas Relays.
