JONES MAKES TRACKS AT BIG 12 CHAMPIONSHIPS

0

March 10, 2003 — University of Oklahoma junior and St. Croix Educational Complex graduate Laverne Jones has continued her successful indoor track season at the Big 12 Conference Indoor Track Championships.
She produced 14 points for the Sooner women, finishing second in the 60-meter dash in 7.35 and third in the 200-meter dash in 23.60. Both times were NCAA provisional marks. Jones finished second in the 60 by just .03 seconds.
Both times qualify her for the World Indoor Championships which will be held the same weekend as the NCAA Championships at the end of March. It is likely that Jones will compete in the NCAA event for the indoor championships.
It's also likely she will join the V.I. team for the CAC [Central American and Caribbean] Senior Championships, the Pan American Games and the World Championships later in the summer. Jones is currently world ranked and is listed as sixth in the Caribbean in the 60 and 200 meters.
