Baucham Earns All-American Honors at NCAA Indoor
March 12, 2005
Senior Candice Baucham earned the third All-American honor of her career as she placed third in the triple jump at the NCAA Indoor Championships in Fayetteville, AR with an indoor lifetime-best jump of 44-4.
Baucham, who placed third at last year's NCAA Indoor with a then indoor lifetime-best of 44-2.75, duplicated her performance with this year's third place finish.
'I'm very pleased with how Candice competed today,' said Head Jumps Coach Robert Johnson. 'Techinically, she did what she was supposed to do. You can't ever be disappointed when an athlete goes out and competes to their best ability, and today Candice did that. Now we turn are focus towards outdoor and what will be a great year for Candice and our team.'
On Friday, fellow Bruin junior Dawn Harper also earned All-American honors with a third place finish in the 60m hurdles. Harper ran a lifetime-best 8.05 to earn her fourth All-American honor in her career.
