Burks Wins Long Jump to Pace Alabama at the War Eagle Invitational...

on 4/24/2017 08:00:00 AM

Crimson Tide Track & Field:

Alabama's Quanesha Burks won her second straight long jump competition of the 2017 season on Saturday and posted the top collegiate time in the women's 100 meters on the final day of the War Eagle Invitational at Auburn's Hutsell-Rosen Track.

Burks opened the day with the long jump win, posting a season-best mark of 22-0 ¾ (6.72m) on her first jump of the competition that held up as the winning mark.

Later in the day, she rolled to a time of 11.18 in the 100 meters, finishing as the top collegian in the race. The time is a personal-best and sixth-fastest ever run at Alabama.

Other top performers for the women included Vanessa Clerveaux, who was the first collegiate finisher in the women's 100-meter hurdles in a time of 13.36, and sophomore Stacey Destin posted the top collegiate clearance in the women's high jump with a personal-best mark of 6-0 (1.83m).

Destin's mark equals the eighth-best leap in Alabama history.

For the men, junior Ruebin Walters won the men's 110-meter hurdles with a time of 13.53 in his outdoor season debut while sophomore Daniel Haugh finished second in the men's discus with a throw of 182-9 (55.70m).

Alabama will compete in its last scheduled regular season meet next weekend when the Tide travels to Baton Rouge, La. for the SEC Relays, April 28-29 at LSU.
