Asinga Conquers 400m Hurdles, Basten Victorious in 1500m Run on Day Three

DES MOINES, Iowa -- made history on the final day of the Missouri Valley Conference Outdoor Track & Field Championships hosted by Drake University at Drake Stadium on Sunday, May 15.

In front of the home crowd, Asinga ran away from the pack for the win in her season-best of 59.55 seconds to become the first-ever Drake Bulldog to win the women's 400-meter hurdles at the MVC Championships. She cruised past the field by more than three seconds while the band of blue in the stands at Drake Stadium roared when Asinga sprinted down the home stretch.
