Graham Smith's throw of 56.3 meters during day two of the Mid-South Conference Track and Field Championships made him the third Tiger in the modern era to qualify in javelin for the national meet.

The 2017 NAIA Track and Field Championships gets underway Thursday and Smith will be on deck as the sixth individual Georgetown College athlete to compete. He joins John Michael Mayo and Derek Sword to throw javelin at nationals.

Mayo did it twice – 2008 and 2009. He finished 12th the same year Sword (2008) was there, who finished 16th. Graham's throw at the MSC championships would have been good enough for 10th in 2008, but he would have been fifth a season ago.

Georgetown College outdoor track and field season is to start – first meet March 24-25 in Lexington, Ky. However, this has not slowed down the Tigers' coach Luke Garnett from working to sign his first commit on the men's team for 2017-18.

Wesley Qualls picked Georgetown over Lindsey Wilson College, Thomas More College, Transylvania University, Wittenburg University and Tennessee Wesleyan College. Along with track and field, he will run cross country.

"Wesley is a solid get for our program," said Garnett. "We are very excited to have him deciding to continue his educational and athletic endeavors at Georgetown.

"He's a great competitor and I know he will push our current guys to reach new heights in our chase for a Mid-South Conference title."
