The Bowerman Watch List – Tonea Marshall

Baton Rouge, La. – Tonea Marshall is one of 10 women on the final watch list of The Bowerman before the NCAA Championships begin later this week. This is Marshall’s ninth appearance on The Bowerman Watch List.

Since the last release of The Bowerman Marshall has nothing but strengthen her case as one of the premier women’s collegiate track and field athletes in the nation. She clocked a time of 12.44 at the NCAA East Preliminaries in the 100 meter hurdles to move up to No. 4 on the all-time collegiate list in the 100 meter hurdles. Not just collegiately, but that time stands out on the world stage, specifically in 2021. The time of 12.44 ranks as the No. 2 time in the world this season as Marshall has inserted herself into talk of one of the most elite hurdlers in the world right now.

Marshall is the 2021 SEC champion in the 100 meter hurdles and she hasn’t lost a race to a collegiate competitor in a hurdles race since June of 2019 going a combined 16-0 since the start of the 2020 indoor season. She’s the favorite entering this week’s NCAA Championships in the 100 meter hurdles and she’s the lead leg of LSU’s world leading 4×100 meter relay team.
