The Blue Devils finished out their regular indoor season Saturday at the Virginia Tech Challenge in Blacksburg, Va.
For the men's squad, junior Peter Lewellen clocked a 400-meter dash time of 49.14 seconds, finishing in eighth place for the event and earning him an IC4A qualification. The day before, Lewellen raced the 500-meter dash in a time of 1:04.73 for his first IC4A qualifying time of the weekend.
Senior Dan King ran a personal-best time of 21.99 seconds in the 200-meter dash, which moved him from fourth to second in Duke's all-time record book.
King had already qualified twice earlier in the season in the 400-meter dash.
On the women's side, senior high jumper Debra Vento tied her season-best height of five feet and 10 inches, which was both a ECAC and NCAA provisional qualifying height.
Junior pole vaulter Lara Jones also qualified for the ECACs with a sixth-place vault of just over 12 feet. This is the sixth time in as many attempts that she has qualified.
The next competition for both squads will be Feb. 22-24, when they travel to Clemson, S.C. for the ACC Indoor Championships.
