Anderson Wins Third Consecutive Title at Pac-10 Track & Field Championships
May 16, 2010
BERKELEY, Calif. -- Washington State junior Jeshua Anderson won his third consecutive intermediate hurdles title Sunday afternoon during the final day of the Pacific-10 Conference Track & Field Championships at Edwards Stadium/Goldman Field in Berkeley.
Anderson, from Woodland Hills, Calif., won the men's 400m hurdles in a season-best and national-leading time of 48.63 seconds. His time Sunday was just 16/100s of a second off his school-record time of 48.47 run last season. WSU's J Hopkins finished seventh in the same intermediate hurdles final in a time of 52.71.
Anderson, the two-time defending NCAA champion, became the third man to win three Pac-10 400m hurdles titles (since 1976), and only the second student-athlete to win three consecutive times. UCLA's Kevin Young won the intermediate hurdles in 1986, '87 and '88, while UCLA's Brandon Johnson won the titles in 2004, '05 and 2007. Earlier in the afternoon, Anderson took third in the 110m high hurdles with a time of 14.07.
