Jasmine Quinn Named SEC Runner of the Week

LEXINGTON, Ky. – Kentucky track and field’s Jasmine Quinn was named the first Southeastern Conference Runner of the Week of the 2016 outdoor season, the league office announced on Tuesday.

The freshman made her outdoor-season debut with a nation-leading 100-meter hurdles time of 13.01, into a light headwind to win at the Baldy Castillo Invitational.

Her time is the UK freshman record, and ranks tied for No. 2 in school history all-time, only behind last year's NCAA Champion Kendra Harrison who broke 13 seconds numerous times during her junior and senior seasons.

She helped the Kentucky women's team win the Castillo Invitational 134.5-117.5 over Texas A&M.

She was named SEC Runner of the Week for the first time. She was selected to the SEC All-Freshman Team during the indoor season.
