The Pima Community College track & field teams competed in the first ACCAC Meet of the season at Paradise Valley Community College on Saturday and set four outdoor national qualifying marks.

Kevin Snead finished in second place for the 100-meter dash with a qualifying time of 10.61. That mark also put him fifth in school history. Deante Gaines (Cibola HS) set his qualifying mark in the long jump finishing in fourth place with a jump of 23’10”. That jump put Gaines eighth all-time in school history. Kathy Fisher (Sahuaro HS) took second place in the 400-meter hurdles with a qualifying time of 1 minute, 03.52 seconds.

The women’s team finished 3-1 defeating Paradise Valley Community College, Mesa Community College and Glendale Community College but it lost to Central Arizona College.
