Taylor Wraps Up Competition at USA Outdoors
June 25, 2014
SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Tremanisha Taylor wrapped up competition at the USA Track and Field Outdoor Championships on Wednesday, finishing 16th in the qualifying round of the shot put.
Taylor's second throw of 52'11.00" (16.13m) put her in 13th place overall with one throw remaining, but she was not able to add distance on her third and final throw, coming up just short of finishing among the top 12 and moving on to the finals.
The women's shot put, which took place in front of the state Capitol dome in Sacramento, kicked off the prestigious four-day event. Taylor qualified for the event after setting a school-record in the shot put earlier this year with a throw of 57'09.00. The two-time All-American and four-time All-ACC honoree also holds the NC State school-record in the indoor shot put.
