MEMPHIS, Tenn. – Sophomore Dakarai Bush had a hand in half of 16th-ranked Harding’s eight event victories Friday at the Rhodes 7-Way Meet.
The Tatum, Texas, native won the 400 meters in 48.28, won the 110 hurdles in 14.27, ran the second leg of the victorious 4×100-meter relay (41.89), and ran the anchor leg of the winning 4×400-meter relay (3:12.16).
His 400-meter time was a PR and his 110 hurdles time was an NCAA provisional, just off his season-best of 14.25.

The 4×100 relay team was Krishaun Watson, Bush, Jamaric Hill and Davion Smith, and the 4×400 team included Smith, Gaye, Csokas and Bush. The mile relay time of 3:12.16 was the fifth-fastest in Division II this season.
