COLLEGE STATION - Lamar's Jeremy Kemp ended his collegiate career on Friday night after he failed to qualify for the finals of the men's 200 meters at the 2004 NCAA Midwest Regional in Frank G. Anderson Track and Field Complex on the campus of Texas A&M University.
Kemp, a senior from Sherman, ran a 21.51 to place sixth in the first of four heats on Friday night, but it was not enough to earn a spot in Saturday's final. His time was the second fastest of the season for Lamar, trailing only his regional qualifying time.
Kemp earned his regional berth after blistering Ty Terrell Track with a 200-meter time of 21.14 on Mar. 27 during LU's Ty Terrell Relays. He recently competed in his final Southland Conference Outdoor Championship where he earned a pair of eighth-place finishes in the 100- and 200-meters. He turned in a time of 10.91 in the 100 and recorded a 21.97 in the 200.
