Day Two Results

DES MOINES, Iowa - Senior sprinter/hurdler Christina Manning helped wrap up the second day of action at the 2012 NCAA Outdoor Championships in Des Moines, Iowa, with a heat-winning performance in the 100m hurdles.

Manning placed first in the second heat of the hurdles and fifth overall in a time of 12.87. At approximately 1:14 p.m. ET on Saturday, June 9, the Waldorf, Md., native will take to the track for the last hurdle race in her career as a Buckeye in an effort to win her first outdoor NCAA title. Clemson hurdling duo Bridgette Owens (12.71) and Brianna Rollins (12.73) turned in season-best times to both win their heats in preparation for the Saturday's finals where they will enter with the top times from the semifinals.

In a hard fought race, the Ohio State 4x400m relay team missed qualifying for the finals with a 16th-place finish in 3:36.24. Nyjah Cousar, Jackie Dim, Aisha Cavin and Shaniqua McGinnis combined for the relay. LSU's relay team ran a 3:28.01 to lead into the final race.

Alexis Thomas and Maggie Mullen also competed Thursday for the Scarlet and Gray. In the hammer throw, Thomas (58.27m/191-2) took 18th and Mullen wrapped up her Ohio State career with a mark of 57.01m (187 ft.). Southern Illinois' Jeneva McCall improved on her runner-up finish last season with a win Thursday. McCall claimed the gold medal with a mark of 68.67m (225-3).



Day three will begin Friday at 5:30 p.m. ET. The Buckeyes will not compete again until the final day of the meet, Saturday, June 9.
