Tubbs Making Big Splash On Collegiate Scene

January 29, 2000

Tampa, Fla. - In just two collegiate track meets, Jacksonville freshman Monique Tubbs has already made it known throughout the southeast that she will be a significant presence in every meet she enters. After opening her collegiate indoor track career with an impressive showing at Florida, Tubbs took her show outdoors to the 2000 South Florida Winter Classic hosted by USF. Tubbs finished the meet with a third place in the 60 meter dash (7.55), .10 behind the champion from USF, and a first place in the 200 meter dash (25.52).

The Dolphins' Laura Winn and Lysa Lee also competed in the meet, Winn picking up a 7th place finish in the 400 meter dash (1:03.34), while Lee finished fourth in the long jump (5.00 m or 16'-5").
