Blanche Ely’s No. 7 ranked national sprinter Rashard Robinson put off his show until Saturday’s BCAA Track championships at Dillard. With Robinson cruising to qualifying times, Douglas’ Trevor Butts seized the spotlight by winning the 100 hurdles, 300 hurdles and triple jump and leading the Eagles’ 1,600-relay team to second place at the BCAA north qualifier at Blanche Ely on Wednesday.
“This was a big meet leading up to Saturday,’’ Butts said. “I came in with the confidence to win all three individual events. I’m looking for a couple guys out there in the hurdles. Ely will be there and Maurice Dix from St. Thomas Aquinas.”
Robinson, expected to be among the biggest draws at the BCAA Finals after clocking a personal-best 10.46 at the Walter Dix Invitational, barely broke a sweat in winning that race in 11.02. Robinson also teamed with Justin Campbell, Trevonte McFadden and Thomas Geddis to win the 400-meter relay in 43.20 and came back to win the 200 in 22.00 after his starting blocks slipped.
“In the 100, I didn’t want to go too hard,’’ Robinson said. “I just cruised it to get me to Saturday and get ready. I’m expecting to win the 100 and 200 through God, and our relay team to place in the top three. This means a lot. God has blessed me with a lot of things.”
