     CLINTON, Miss. — Xavier University of Louisiana's women's 400-meter relay team of Tramaine Shannon, Devinn Rolland, Chartia Hurt and Chelsea James reached the NAIA's A-qualifying standard Friday at the Mississippi College Twilight Invitational.
     The Gold Nuggets' foursome finished sixth in a season-best 47.99 seconds to qualify for the NAIA Outdoor Track and Field Championships at Marion, Ind., in May.
     Xavier recorded 12 additional season bests, including Rolland's 18 feet, 11 inches in the long jump — she finished third — and Catherine Fakler's winning times of 4:48.87 in the women's 1,500 and 18:23.24 in the 5,000. Christopher Kennie was fifth in the men's long jump in a season-best 23-0.
     Rolland met the A-standard in the long jump for the fourth time in five outdoor meets this season. She also won the 200 in 24.73.
     The Gold Nuggets have qualified for nationals in seven events: Rolland in the 100, 200 and long jump, Zahri Jackson in the 800 and 1,500, the 400 relay and the 1,600 relay with Rolland, Jackson, Shannon and Hurt.
