Three Hoosiers Compete on Friday at USATF Championships
June 27, 2009
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Tiffany Howard, Molly Beckwith and Sarah Pease were all in action at the 2009 United States Track and Field Championships in Eugene, Ore. This was the second of four days of competition at the meet.
Tiffany Howard was competing unattached in the shot put and her first toss of 16.87 meters ended up being her best of the day and she finished in eighth place. Her second toss traveled 16.64 meters while her next three were all just under 16 meters.
Molly Beckwith was back in action in the semifinals of the 800 meters and while she improved upon her time from the previous day, she wound up in 11th place and failed to qualify for the finals. Her semifinal time of 2:05.04 was 0.82 faster than her first round time.
And in the 3000 meter steeplechase, Sarah Pease finished the race with a time of 10:14.25 to put her in 15th place. However, only the top 14 advance to the semifinals so she will not move on in that event.
