Watson Places 2nd in Long Jump at USATF Junior Nationals

June 21, 2007

Freshman Danielle Watson placed second in the long jump competition at the USATF Junior National Championships in Indianapolis, IN, earning her a chance at a spot on Team USA for the PanAm Junior Games.

Watson finished in the runner-up position with a mark of 19-10.25. The first-place finisher might decide to focus solely on the hurdles, and could vacate her spot to Watson for the PanAm Games.

Also on Thursday, former Bruin Monique Henderson ran the fifth-fastest time of the day (2nd in heat two) in the first round of the 400m (51.62) in the Senior section of the meet. She will run in the semifinal round on Friday.

More results to follow.
