April 7, 2007
Despite rain and very cold temperatures, several Bruins were able to compete on the final day of competition at the Texas Relays in Austin. Ingrid Kantola, Ashley Caldwell, Allie Bohannon and the distance medley relay team braved the conditions to compete in their respective events.
Kantola finished third in the 'A' section of the pole vault with a mark of 12-5.50, while the DMR team of Lauren Jirges, Allison Hall, Olga Aulet-Leon and Maris Wisdom placed third in a time of 11:48.36.
Bohannon and Caldwell, both competing in the 'A' section of the 1500m, finished fourth and ninth overall as Bohannon ran a lifetime-best by nearly 18 seconds, running 4:30.99. Caldwell finished ninth in a time of 4:39.36.
The Bruins return home next week as they host the Rafer Johnson/Jackie Joyner-Kersee Invitational April 12-14.
