Freshman Edobi to compete at IAAF World Championships
July 17, 2014
Before long, New Jersey track standout Jennifer Edobi will be wearing Vanderbilt attire. But next week, she'll be sporting different colors.
Edobi, who will join the Vanderbilt roster this fall, recently completed an outstanding career at Union High in Union, N.J., including posting a career-best time of 2:08.21 in the 800 during the season.
She led Union High to a county title by winning both the 800 (2:15.20) and the 400 (55.86) and finished second in the 200 (25.20).
In the North Jersey sectional meet, Edobi placed second in the 800 (2:15.62) and the 400 (54.82), and was third in the 200 (25.08). At the Group 4 Championships, Edobi finished runner-up in all three events in 2:11.79, 54.21, and 25.47.
