     NEW ORLEANS — Xavier University of Louisiana sophomore Devinn Rolland produced top-four finishes Saturday in the long jump and 100-meter dash at the McNeese Cowboy Relays and reached A- and B-standard qualifying marks for the NAIA Outdoor Track and Field Championships.
     Rolland met the NAIA's A-standard in the long jump for the second time in as many meets this year. She jumped a season-best 18 feet, 9 inches and finished second. Rolland met the B-standard in the 100, placing fourth out of 44 runners in 12.06 seconds in a multi-heat event.
     Rolland had the same distance as the long jump winner, Jasmine Ellis of Central Arkansas, but Ellis was awarded first place because her second-best jump was longer than Rolland's.
     Xavier's Zahri Jackson was third in the mile in 5:02.44 and missed the NAIA's B-standard by 17-hundredths of a second.
     The NAIA's national meet will be May 23-25 at Marion, Ind. The next meet for Xavier's men and women will be the Louisiana Classics at Lafayette, La., next Saturday.
