null

Yesterday, we rolled out the best performances for all of the men’s Bowerman finalists. Today, we look at the top result for each of the women.

Sydney McLaughlin: SEC Championships, 400m Hurdles

McLaughlin had a career’s worth of big races packed into her freshman campaign. Although she put down historic marks in the 200m and 400m, her definitive best race came at the SEC Championships when she ran 52.75 in the 400m hurdles, smashing the collegiate record. The time is tied for the 13th best of all-time and is only .41 seconds from the world record. 


Keturah Orji: SEC Championships, Triple Jump

Orji won the three individual titles this year, capping an extraordinary career. Her best mark came at the SEC Outdoor Championships when she jumped 14.62m to break her own collegiate record. 


Maggie Ewen: NCAA Outdoor Championships, Discus

Ewen was in contention for a historic throwing triple this season and along the way she piled up the collegiate records. Choosing between those performances is tough so instead, I went with not her farthest, but her most clutch, throw. In her final attempt at the NCAA Championships, Ewen came from behind to win the discus and complete the shot put/discus sweep.
