Livingstone may be a tiny, private school in little Salisbury, NC but one of its student-athletes just pulled off a big accomplishment. Quanera Hayes won the indoor US Track and Field National title in the 400m on Saturday, running a time of 51.09, beating Ashley Spencer and Natasha Hastings, who rounded out the top three.
Hayes broke the tape in 51.09. She has to reup her hotel for @Portland2016 next week. #Portland2016 @HBCUGameday

Hayes won the NCAA Division II title at the 400 meters in the outdoor season last year.
