Blackwood Third at Kansas Relays
Brandy Blackwood        LAWRENCE, Kan. - Junior Brandy Blackwood continued her string of impressive marks for the University of Arkansas Lady Razorback track team on Thursday with a third-place finish at the Kansas Relays in the hammer throw.
        Blackwood projected a toss of 174 feet, two inches to finish just behind Delisa McClain of Oklahoma State who won the competition with a throw of 178-6. Blackwood was the second collegiate in the competition as the second-place finisher was an unattached competitor.
        "Brandy has worked very hard over the course of the year and I am not surprised at all by her results," Arkansas assistant coach Bryan Compton said. "She has been in the weight room consistently and has improved her technique immensely. She has trained really hard over the past couple weeks and I think that she can throw even further when we hit a slow point in her training cycle."
        Blackwood put together a modest toss of 166-2 on her first attempt, and then improved to 167-6 on her second throw. Putting everything she had into her third and final throw of preliminary action, Blackwood hit her best mark of the competition, then had three solid marks in the final, but none that surpassed her 174-2.
        Blackwood's third-place finish is her first non-victory in the hammer this season and is her third consecutive NCAA Regional qualifier in the event. Blackwood's career best mark came three weeks ago at the PSU Invitational when she hit one for 185-5.
        The Lady Razorbacks continue to compete this weekend at the Mt. SAC Relays and the SW Bell/Michael Johnson Invitational in Walnut, Calif., and Waco, Texas, respectively, Friday and Saturday.
