SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Dominic Berger and Adam Durham of the University of Maryland competed Wednesday in the men's 110-meter hurdles at the 2007 NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships held at Hornet Stadium.
In first-round heats held on Wednesday evening, Berger suffered a false start in the second heat, leaving the competition based on NCAA rules. College rules disqualify a runner on the first false-start in a heat instead of the second false-start in international competition.
In the third heat, Durham finished ninth with a time of 17.93, finishing the event despite having trouble with one of the hurdles.
The top four from each heat plus the next six finishers advanced to semifinal heats later on Wednesday. John Yarbrough of Ole Miss was the fastest qualifier in the first round, winning the third heat in 13.45 seconds.
Berger and Durham will be among the Terrapins who will compete this month at the USATF Senior and Junior Nationals.
