     NATCHITOCHES, La. — Xavier University of Louisiana's Kailey Williams, Devinn Rolland, Tramaine Shannon and Chelsea James ran the women's 400-meter relay in 47.42 seconds Saturday to finish fourth in the Leon Johnson NSU Invitational track and field meet.
     It was the fourth time this season that the Gold Nuggets met the A-qualifying standard in this event for next month's NAIA National Championships. The time is the fastest in Joseph Moses' five seasons as XU's coach, and it came from a lineup he used for the first time. Rolland and James have been part of all four A-times.
     Rolland again met A-qualifying times in the 200 (24.75) and long jump (19-2 3/4). Both marks were her second-best of the year. Rolland met the B-standard in the 100 (12.12), an event in which she met the A-standard twice this season.
     Catherine Fakler produced Xavier's highest finish, third place out of 11 in the 5,000. Fakler's 18:57.83 was her second-fastest time of the season.
     Kaylee Moore ran a season-best 12.43 in the 100.
     The meet was the sixth of the season for the Gold Nuggets, who are ranked 17th in the NAIA. There was no team scoring.
