Clovis alum Jenna Prandini of Oregon ties top 100-meter world mark of season

Former Clovis High star Jenna Prandini keeps setting collegiate records -- not just in the long jump but in the sprints.

Prandini, a junior at Oregon, ran the second-fastest, wind-legal time in college history and the top time this season in the 100-meter sprint after winning at 10.92 seconds at the Mt. SAC Relays in Walnut.

Prandini trails only former Louisiana State star Dawn Sowell's time of 10.78 during a race at altitude in Provo, Utah in 1989 and is tied with Elaine Thompson for the fastest time in the world this season.

Pradini, who set Oregon's 100 record, posted another world-leading mark and set a second Oregon record after running the 200 in 22.42 seconds. Her bested her own school record of 22.60 seconds from last season.

"What Jenna Prandini is able to gout there and do is phenomenal," Oregon coach Robert Johnson said in a news release. "It leaves you speechless."

Earlier this month, Prandini jumped 21 feet and a half inch to register the fourth best mark in the NCAA this season.
