Well, redshirt freshman Chris Kourlesis (Richmond, Va.) made sure he didn't miss his opportunity as he earned a spot in next week's IC4A Championships to lead a small group from the Virginia Commonwealth University men's track & field at this past weekend's Mason Last Chance Meet.
Kourlesis locked up a spot in the IC4A Championships after a third-place finish and a leap of 47' ½" in the triple jump. He is the 11th and final Ram to qualify for next week's championship event.
Freshman Clinton Burrell (Woodbridge, Va.) was also a highlight in a slow weekend as he captured his first collegiate victory with a time of 8.64 in the 60-meter hurdles, right ahead of Kourlesis, who added to his solid weekend.
The Rams will now take the week to prepare for their trip up to Boston and the IC4As.
