Knoxville native sets regional qualifying mark and ETSU record in 100m

 

MACON, Ga. (May 13, 2009) - ETSU senior sprinter Judy Johnson (Knoxville, Tenn.) made the most of her homecoming on Saturday afternoon at the Tennessee Invitational in Knoxville. Johnson claimed a regional qualifying mark in the 100-meter dash to earn her first career Athlete of the Week award, the conference announced Wednesday.

 

Johnson sprinted to a regional qualifying mark in the 100m during her final tune up before the Atlantic Sun Championships on the Tom Black Track by recording an ETSU record time of 11.68. The Knoxville, Tenn., native's time also leaped her past Belmont's Lynette Rives in the 100m, and Johnson - who has now set regional qualifying marks in both the 100 and 200m events this season - ranks number one in both events in the A-Sun.  

 

ETSU heads to Jacksonville, Fla. this weekend to compete in the 2009 Atlantic Sun Outdoor Track & Field Championships hosted by UNF at Hodges Stadium.  The Lady Bucs finished in fifth last year.
