Marshall Jr., Van Klinken Claim Gold as ASU Closes Out Pac-12 Championships

May 16, 2021

LOS ANGELES - Arizona State collected two more gold medals on the final day of the Pac-12 Championships Sunday afternoon in Los Angeles. Competing at Southern California's Katherine B. Loker Stadium, freshman Jamar Marshall Jr. tied his program record in the 110H when he won the event in 13.49, and graduate student Jorinde van Klinken made the second-farthest discus throw in program history (62.58m/205-3) on her second hurl of the day. ASU finished fourth in the men's rankings (72 points), third in the women's (77), and collected four conference championship medals during the week.
ASU continued to show why it should be known as "Throws U." Three of the Sun Devils' champions this week were throwers, and the event group picked up an additional silver and bronze medal in the women's shot and hammer events.
Marshall Jr.'s victory in the 110H gave ASU it's first crown in that event since Andrew Parker went back-to-back in 1986 and '87 and it was the first sub-13.50 time since USC's Aleec Harris ran 13.35 in 2014. Kentre Patterson finished right behind Marshall in 13.57, which puts him third all-time.

Van Klinken continued her domination in the discus event and completed the season sweep with Sunday's victory. Her 62.58m/205-3 throw is second all-time at ASU, edging out 11-time first team All-American Magdalyn Ewen's 62.47/204-11.5 from the 2018 season. Van Klinken now has the best-mark in the NCAA this season.

Christina Warren left an unbelievable mark at her first conference championship when she lept 12.92/42-4.75 in the triple jump. The athletic-freshman now has the second-best mark in program history.

The Sun Devils now turn their eyes to the NCAA West Prelims May 26-29. Texas A&M is hosting the meet.
