Dorman's Rowland not competing in Nike Indoor Nationals

Dorman coach Jeff Buys said an e-mail to Monday that senior sprinter Marcus Rowland is not competing in Nike Indoor Nationals this weekend.

"Marcus will not be attending the Nike meet this weekend, we have withdrawn as a team," said Buys.

Earlier this indoor season, Rowland sealed a 60-meter dash win of 6.74 seconds over Georgia's Kenneth Gilstrap (6.85), four-hundreds of a second off the meet record (1999) at the University of Kentucky indoor invitational. The senior also finished first in the preliminaries with a time of 6.74 seconds. Dorman's Ash Butler ran a Nike Indoor Nationals time of 7.23 seconds, good for 25th place in the preliminaries.

At the indoor meet in 2007, Rowland, heading to Auburn in the fall, finished fifth out of six in the 60-meter dash finals in 6.83 seconds.

Dorman is scheduled to compete in this weekend's Trojan Relays.
