Khemani Roberts seized silver at the Eastern College Athletic Conference/IC4A Division 1 Indoor Track and Field Championships in Boston, USA, on Friday. The Coppin State University student accumulated 3,695 points for second spot in the women's pentathlon.

Roberts clocked 9.28 seconds in the 60 metres hurdles, cleared bar at 1.74m in the high jump, threw 11.50m in the shot put, produced a 5.33m leap in the long jump, and returned a time of two minutes, 32.55 seconds in the 800m.

Roberts was back in action on Saturday, competing in the individual women's high jump event. She finished 11th with a 1.64m clearance.

Another Trinidad and Tobago/Coppin State athlete, Aaron Lewis bagged bronze in yesterday's men's 60m hurdles final. He clocked 8.02 seconds.

Lewis was the fastest man on show in Saturday's semifinal round, stopping the clock at a personal best 7.92 seconds to top heat two and lead all qualifiers into the championship race. Had Lewis reproduced that run in the final, he would have emerged with the title. Lewis was also the fastest in the preliminaries, the 21-year-old athlete winning heat one in 8.11 seconds.

Haysean Cowie-Clarke clocked 6.88 seconds to finish fifth in the men's 60m dash. The Coppin State senior had booked his lane in yesterday's final with a 6.91 runner-up finish in the second semifinal heat, on Saturday. In the opening round, Cowie-Clarke produced a 7.02 run to finish fourth in his heat, progressing to the semis as a "fastest loser".
