Antoinette Cobb Finishes 12th at USATF Championships

June 27, 2010


DES MOINES, Iowa - Antoinette Cobb's stellar collegiate career came to a close Saturday as she ran 13.66 to finish fifth in her heat and 12th overall in the semifinals at the USATF Championships in Des Moines.

Cobb's fifth place finish in her semifinal heat left her one place short of advancing to Sunday's finals in a live televised race on ESPN. The five-time WAC Champion concluded her career as one of the most decorated track and field athletes in school history.

Cobb ran nine of the 10 fastest times on the team in the 100m hurdles this season and broke the school record twice, including a dominating 13.07 time at the WAC Championships as she ran the fastest time of any WAC athlete in 11 years.

The 2010 Honda Inspiration Award winner, Cobb's story of triumphing over stage III colon cancer marked the first time a collegiate track and field story was a front page headline in The Shreveport Times.
