Antoinette Cobb Ranked 16th in the World in 100m Hurdles
April 15, 2010
RUSTON, La. - Louisiana Tech's Antoinette Cobb has shown she is among the best at Louisiana Tech and in the Western Athletic Conference and among the top in the nation, but now her talent is among the international marks. Entering this weekend's competition at LSU, Cobb is ranked 16th in the world in the 100m hurdles.
The international performance list is maintained by the IAAF, the international body overseeing track and field. She is currently four-hundredths of a second faster than Israel's Irina Lenskiy who competed at the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens, Greece.
Cobb's time of 13.22 in the 100m hurdles broke the school record and is the fastest time ran by any WAC student-athlete in the event since 1999. Cobb currently ranks 12th in the nation. She was recently named the WAC Female Track Athlete of the Week for the third consecutive week and is the first WAC student-athlete to ever achieve that accomplishment dating back to 2000 when records were first kept.
Louisiana Tech and Cobb will be competing this weekend at the LSU Alumni Gold meet on April 16-17 at the Bernie Moore Track Stadium in Baton Rouge, La.
