Baylor’s Bennett Places Fourth At USATF Junior Championships

CLOVIS, Calif. - On the first day of the USATF Junior Outdoor Championships, freshman Taylor Bennett placed fourth in the 100-meter dash with a time of 11.45 Friday at Veteran's Memorial Stadium.

Bennett opened her day by posting the second-fastest qualifying time by winning her 100-meter prelim in 11.40. Two hours later, Bennett returned to the track as she was looking to finish in the top two of the final to qualify for the IAAF World U20 Championships in Bydgoszcz, Poland, July 19-24.

Running in the same 100-meter prelim as Bennett, Kiana Horton placed fifth and finished 16th overall with a time of 12.32.

·         BU signee Aaliyah Miller closed strong and scratched out a win in the first prelim of the 800 meters with a time of 2:04.07. That time was the fastest on the night with the final set to be contested on Saturday.
