Moore Wins Big 12 Title in 110 Hurdles
May 18, 2014
LUBBOCK, Texas -- TCU freshman Jordan Moore added a second Big 12 championship to his satchel on the final day of the Big 12 Conference Outdoor Championships Sunday.
Moore tied LaTerance Dunbar's school record with the time of 13.64 seconds in the 110H at Fuller Track Stadium at Texas Tech University to win the event.
"Jordan rose to the occasion and competed really well," TCU Track and Field coach Darryl Anderson said. "He ran a personal best and he continues to get better. Now the next step is the first round of the NCAA meet. He's got a great opportunity to come out of there and go to Eugene, Oregon."
Moore won the 60H indoor title March 1 in Ames, Iowa.
"It's a blessing. It's another addition to my résumé and it's just a blessing, that's all I can say," Moore said. "It's one of the best races of my life, and I feel like I'm in the best shape of my life right now."
The Frog men (51) and the Frog women (45) each placed eighth in their second Big 12 Outdoor Championships.
TCU junior thrower Megan Smith notched her second second-place finish in the championships Sunday with her toss of 180 feet, 4 inches in the women's discus. She placed second in the shot Saturday.
Kolby Listenbee and Lorraine Ugen also scored for the Frogs in multiple individual events during the championships: Listenbee finished fourth in the 200 meters (20.65 seconds) and fifth in the 100 meters (10.12), while Ugen finished fourth in the long jump (20-01) Saturday and placed seventh in the 100 meters (11.44) Sunday.
"All in all we had a couple of people step up their performances to get themselves in a better position for NCAA Regionals," Anderson said.
In relay scoring performances: men's 4 x 100 (Listenbee, Cameron Echols-Luper, Ronnie Baker, Sam Watts; second, 39.61); women's 4 x 100 relay team (Iphona-Clemence Paiement, Sabrina Moore, Veronica Jones, Ugen; third, 44.82); women's 4 x 400 meters (Alexandria Peters, Tiffany Terry, Veronica Jones, Briyanni Thomas; fourth, 3:37.58); men's 4 x 400 relay (Narada Jackson, Harvey McSwain, Justin Chambers, Baker; third, 3:09.10).
