Young Selected To USA Relay Pool
July 7, 2009
FORT WORTH, Texas - Junior Jessica Young received word on Monday that she has been selected to the United States 4x100 relay pool for the 2009 IAAF World Championships in Berlin.
By being selected to the pool, Young is recognized as one of the best United States sprinters. The four-time All-American will compete at the London Grand Prix on July 24 as well as an additional meet in Cottbus, Germany on August 8. Her performance in both meets will determine whether or not she makes the United States relay team, which will be announced on August 10th.
Young recently posted a seventh-place finish in the 100 meters at the USA Outdoor Track and Field Championships. Her wind-aided time of 11.06 seconds, which would have crushed the previous school record, was the fastest time recorded by a TCU female sprinter since 2006.
