Todd, Walsh Take Silver at USA Championships

EUGENE, Ore. – On day three of the 2019 USA Championships in Des Moines, Iowa, current #ProDucks Jasmine Todd and Cole Walsh claimed runner-up finishes in the long jump and pole vault, respectively. Five former UO standouts also advanced, including three—Phyllis Francis, Deajah Stevens and English Gardner—in the women's 200 meters.

Walsh had a final clearance of 5.76m/18-10.75 and was the runner-up to eventual champion and new American-record holder Sam Kendricks. Walsh had a third-attempt clearance at 5.56m/18-3 to stay alive in the competition and went on to take three runs at a would-be personal best before bowing out of the competition.
