Nigerian athletes Rosemary Chukwuma and Temitope Adeshina earned huge points for Texas Tech over the weekend as the pair won the women’s 100m and High Jump titles respectively at the Big-12 Championships in Waco, Texas.

Chukwuma clocked a Season’s Best (SB) of 11.12s to earn her maiden Big-12 Outdoor 100m title, which backed up the Big-12 60m title she claimed during the indoor season, making it her first 60m/100m sweep in the Big-12 Championships in the same season.

Iyana Gray placed 2nd with a time of 11.24s while Kevona Davis returned a time of 11.32s to take 3rd.

Adeshina, who is having a sensational freshman year, scaled a height of 1.90m on her last attempt to also achieve a Big-12 sweep both indoors and outdoors. Her jump of 1.90m is an outdoor SB, eclipsing the 1.88m she registered at the Corky Shootout two weeks ago.

Cierra Allphin was 2nd in 1.83m while Saara Hakanen and Claire Lowrey tied for third with a mark of 1.80m.
