Tong And Soderstrom Get Things Underway At Mt. SAC Relays
April 17, 2014
Jenna Tong and Kira Soderstrom competed in the 3000m steeplechase tonight (April. 17) to get things started for USC at the Mt. SAC Relays. The competition continues April 18-19 with many of the current and former Trojan athletes expected to be in action.
The sophomore Tong placed 10th with a time of 10:46.27 in Section A of the women's 3000m SC. That time was less than four seconds off her PR set earlier this season, which ranks third all-time by a Trojan. She entered the season with a PR of 10:59.73, but has been under 10:54 in all four races this season.
Soderstrom placed 12th with a time of 11:15.21 in Section C of the women's steeplechase. Soderstrom was coming off a PR of 10:57.13 at the Cal-Nevada Championships which moved her into fifth place on USC's all-time list.
