Bohannon Thrives in National Spotlight at Tyson Invite
Feb. 9, 2007
Allie Bohannon led the Bruin women on day one of the Tyson Invitational in Fayetteville, AR as the sophomore finished third in the championship section of the mile running a lifetime-best 4:41.42. Her time was just 1.42 seconds shy of an NCAA automatic qualifier and kept her ranked amongst the top-10 in the nation. Her performance today shaved two seconds off her previous lifetime-best, 4:43.43, set in Seattle, WA two weeks ago at the Washington Invitational.
In the championship section of the pole vault, senior Jacqueline Nguyen jumped a season-best 12-6.75 to finish in a tie for ninth-place.
Competition continues Saturday with the women's 4x400m relay, triple jump, high jump, pole vault and 800m. Williams will compete in the triple, Keneisha Creary and Lauren Correa in the high, Megan Jamerson and Ingrid Kantola in the pole vault, and Bohannon, Caldwell and Hall in the 800m.
