Hardee's Star Of The Week
For The 2011-2012 Season

Keith Ricks (Men's Track & Field, Sr., Suffolk, Va.)

At the NCAA East Preliminary Round over the weekend in Jacksonville, Ricks qualified in three events for the NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championship. He qualified as an individual in the 100 meters and 200 meters and also anchored the 4x100 meter relay team to a spot at the national championship. He reset his own school record in the 200 meters twice in as many days, running a time of 20.46 in the first round Friday, before coming back to run 20.45 in Saturday's quarterfinals. Ricks is the lone Hokie to qualify in multiple individual events for the NCAA Championship this year.
