Thompson Runs No. 7 400m Hurdles Time In NCAA

May 9, 2010

Complete Results

After her 400m hurdles debut was dashed by a technical error last week in the dual with USC, freshman Turquiose Thompson came out hard at the Oxy Invitational, posting the No. 7 time in the NCAA this season.

Thompson ran away with the race as she won by over two seconds, crossing the finish line with a new lifetime best of 57.11 (old best from high school, 57.67). That mark moves her into UCLA's all-time top 10 at the No. 10 spot and is the top mark for a freshman in the NCAA this season.

Also on Saturday, freshman Karlye Marshall upped her lifetime-best to 12-10.25 as she won the pole vault competition. Liz Goodrich tied for sixth (11-4.50) and Allison Koressel tied for 10th (10-10.75).

In sprinting events, Yasmin Woodruff was the top collegiate finisher in the 100m, placing seventh (11.88) and was also sixth in the 200m (24.45). Nijah Nelms was 10th in the 100m (12.04).

The Bruins now turn their focus to the post-season as the Pac-10 Championships in Berkeley are on tap for next weekend.
