Hew, Jacobs and Jerono Preform Well at UTEP Invitational

With just a few meets to go until the NJCAA Outdoor Championships the #1 ranked T-Birds just worked on a few events and rested a few athletes to try and just fine tune the team for the outdoor championships. Despite resting a few athletes and only competing others in one event the T-Birds still continued to improve.

Leading the way was Britney Hew (100M), Teresha Jacobs (1500M) and Sharon Jerono (1500M). In the 100M, Hew finished 2nd place overall in an improved national qualifying time of 11.57. This time jumps her into the top eight on the NJCAA 100M list. In the 1500.....Teresha Jacobs runs an improved national qualifying time and jumps to 5th on the NJCAA list, coming off an injury Sharon Jerono makes her first impact for the T-Birds as she hits the national qualifying time in the 1500M.

The T-Birds will travel a few athletes to the Abilene Christine Wildcat Invitational on Thursday, April 27th the rest of the athletes will take an off week.
