Hawkeyes Take Home Three Golds

April 1, 2006

The University of Iowa women’s track teams competed this weekend in the Springtime Invitational at the University of Texas-El Paso. Juniors Tiffany Johnson and Peaches Roach were the only individual champs for Iowa in the meet that featured competitors from Kansas State, New Mexico, New Mexico State and UTEP.

Johnson breezed to a win in the 100-meter hurdles with a time of 13.63; the next competitor finished in 14.63. Roach cleared 5-10.75 in the high jump to win that event and qualify for the NCAA regional meet. Kineke Alexander, Ashley Granger, Johnson and Roach ran to a first place finish in the 400-meter relay with a time of 24.11 which also qualifies them for the NCAA regional meet.

Four Hawkeyes also set new personal bests in the meet – Granger in the 200 meters, Tammilee Kerr in the javelin, Lindsey McCalla in the 200 meters and Renee White in the long jump.

The Hawkeyes compete next Saturday in the Missouri Invitational in Columbia, MO.
