Prandini headlines Sunday at 2015 USATF Championships
The 2015 USATF Outdoor Track & Field Championships came to a close on Sunday at Hayward Field in Eugene, Oregon, but not before student-athletes, coaches, and alumni from the Conference of Champions had a statement weekend. With six Pac-12 contingents in the mix on Sunday, here's how it all went down on the final day in TrackTown USA:
Track Cat alum Liz Patterson took second place in the high jump at 1.88m, but according to our friends at ArizonaWildcats.com, she'll need to improve to qualify for the USA World Championships team.
TheSunDevils.com tells us that Jordan Clark, venerable ASU shot-putter alum, qualified for Team USA on Sunday with a third-place, 21.49m toss on Sunday at Hayward field.
Buffs alum Jenny Simpson took the title in the women's 1,500m on Sunday with a time of 4:14.86, her second-straight title in the event. CUBuffs.com has the full breakdown.
Sprinter Jenna Prandini is truly special and someone to watch heading into the Rio Olympics. GoDucks.com tells us that she became just the second collegian ever to win a USATF title in the women's 200m on Sunday.
High-jump standout Zibby Boyer was in action on Sunday, and despite her seventh-place finish, will still make the USATF junior team:
Zibby Boyer places 7th at USATF championships. Next, Zibby will be jumping in South Korea at the World University Games on July 10th...
