Monique Tubbs, Andrea Pressley Ranked in First Outdoor Trackwire Dandy Dozen

April 9, 2003

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Jacksonville University junior sprinter Monique Tubbs (Boston, Mass.) has earned the No. 3 ranking in the 100-meter dash in the first outdoor Trackwire Dandy Dozen, while junior Andrea Pressley (Upper Marlboro, Md.) has earned the No. 10 ranking in the Heptathlon.

Tubbs finished second in the 100 at the prestigious Texas Relays this past weekend with a wind-aided time of 11.13, which is the third-fastest 100-meter time in the world this season under all conditions. She finished with the fourth-best qualifying time in the prelims with a second-place finish in her heat at 11.41. Tubbs holds the top times in the Atlantic Sun conference in both the 100 and 200-meter dashes.

Pressley finished with 4,918 points at the Florida Relays last month in her only Heptathlon competition this season. She teamed with Tubbs and juniors Safiya Davy (Mitchellville, Md.) and Tiffany Wright (Lauderdale Lakes, Fla.) to finish fourth in the Invitational finals in the 4x100-meter relay at the Texas Relays with a time of 45.18. The Dolphins 4x100 and 4x400-meter relay teams, which also include freshman Lakisha Brooks (Upper Marlboro, Md.) and senior Kate Clarke (Arlington, Texas), along with Tubbs and Pressley, each hold the top times in the A-Sun.

JU returns to action at the Atlantic Sun Championships, April 17-18, in Orlando, Fla., hosted by UCF.
