The Garden City Community College indoor track and field team was paced by Alfredo Lebron's fourth-place finish in the mile event at the Jayhawk Classic at the University of Kansas.

Lebron finished with a time of 4 minutes, 25.57 seconds, and is ranked 25th in the NJCAA at that mark.

Lebron also qualified for nationals with a time of 1:59.63 in the 800-meter run, good enough for 12th at the meet.

Also meeting the national qualifying standard was Edward Simmons in the 60-meter dash for the second week in a row with a 7-flat finish.

Rounding out the men's results were Dominique Sauls' 14th place in the 60-meter hurdles; Jermaine Arthorlee's 41st in the 60-meter dash; Blake McKinzie's 14th in the 600-yard run; Tyler Eddings' 30th in the 3,000-meter run; Odion Agbi's 17th in the triple jump; and the seventh place Lebron, Qhyle Elijah, McKinzie and Eddings took in the distance medley relay.

On the women's side, Kiera Walton took 30th in the 60-meter hurdles, and Avianna Davis was 46th in the 60-meter dash.

Team scores were not kept for the event.

The Busters are back on the track again on Friday and Saturday in Lubbock, Texas, for the Masked Rider Open at Texas Tech University.
