Marshall Wins Another SEC Weekly Award
Baton Rouge, La. – LSU track and field senior Tonea Marshall was named the SEC Women’s Runner of the Week on Tuesday afternoon after her most recent performance over the weekend at the Crimson Tide Invitational.
This marks the second time outdoors that Marshall has won this award as she also won it after her scintillating showing at the Texas Relays at the end of March.
Marshall won her second 100 meter hurdle title of the season with a wind-aided readout of 12.70 seconds to pull away from the field. The wind aided mark that was benefited by a 3.0 meters per second tailwind ranks as the fastest in the NCAA this year by a long shot. Her season best without a helping wind of 2.0 m/s or higher was the 12.75 that she ran at the Texas Relays, which ranks No. 4 in the world this season.
Marshall also served as the lead leg on LSU’s 4×100 meter relay team that won its third event title of the season with a readout of 43.07 seconds.
This marks the seventh career SEC weekly award for Marshall. LSU is back in action this weekend as they host the Boots Garland Invitational on Saturday at Bernie Moore Track Stadium. Admission is free.
