Henderson finished 14th in USATF Outdoor Championships -- Sunday Cardinal Couple
EMMONNIE'S TOSS SIXTH BEST OF COLLEGIANS, 14TH. OVERALL
Emmonnie Henderson returned to the site of her personal best discus toss...Hayward Field...on the University of Oregon campus in Eugene. Although she wasn't able to duplicate her 58.34m (191-5) from two weeks ago, she finished 14th. overall with a toss of 54.39m (178-5).
To put that into perspective...it would be the equivalent of her standing on the baseline in Cardinal Arena and sending the discus over to softball's Ulmer Stadium.
Henderson's throw was only 1.88 meters from getting her a top ten finish. Gia Lewis-Smallwood won the event with a hurl of 63.09m (207-0).
Henderson finished sixth out of the eight college student-athletes who participated. Shelbi Vaughn (Texas A&M) was good for a 60.76m (199-4)....which was the third best overall throw.
Congratulations to "E" and remember...she has two more years of eligibility in track (and hoops)!
( Let me just throw this out there...that's nothing to toss around lightly...)
Our Saturday Radio Show that broadcasts on WCHQ 100.9 FM and on line at crescenthillradio.com should be available on the SoundCloud later today. We had a great discussion on women's sports, WorldWide destroyed the Quiz by getting a 110% and the show featured a lively debate on the new UofL football helmets.
Sonja says Jeff won the debate. I think I barely edged him out.
You decide. Link below.
