AUSTIN – Tobi Amusan continues to dominate in the 100m hurdles as she claims gold (12.72), while also setting a new meet record at the 90th Clyde Littlefield Texas Relays, presented by Spectrum.
“Tobi and Michael had an outstanding performance this week, breaking two meet records in a historic event like this is outstanding,” UTEP head coach Mika Laaksonen said. “We still have to work hard with most of our athletes to get them going by the championship season.”
The sophomore came into this weekend with the nation’s fastest-time after running 12.63 at Kidd field and continues her undefeated outdoor season. Amusan’s time of 12.72 sets a new meet record previously held by Ashlee Williams (12.83) set in 2005.
In the women’s 1,500m run, Lilian Koech ran a personal-best of 4:22.12 tying the seventh-fastest time in school history, earning a second-place finish. Her time registers as the eighth-fastest time in the nation. Samantha Hall garnered a sixth-place showing the discus throw tossing for 50.52m (165-9).
The 4x400m relay team of Dreshanae Rolle, Florence Uwakwe, Madison Gibson and Ada Benjamin clocked a 3:40.95
Jonah Koech earned a sixth-place showing in the mile run with a time of 4:03.75.
The UTEP track and field program returns to the track April 13-15 for the Mt. SAC Distance Carnival and the UCLA Invitational.
