San Luis Obispo High graduate Abrianna Torres challenged for a Mountain Pacific Sports Federation indoor pentathlon title in Seattle, Washingon on Friday. The University of Colorado redshirt freshman was second after four events and just 11 points behind the leader, but she finished last in her heat in the 800 meter run to fall out of title contention.
Torres still finished fourth out of 24 women competing for the conference title. Torres set new collegiate personal-best marks in all five events and in overall score with 3,832 total points.
The day started with the 60 hurdles. Torres was clocked in 9.11 seconds to earn 887 points and tied for 10th place. Next up was the high jump in which Torres cleared 5 feet, 3 inches to tie for eighth place in the event with 736 points. Torres came in second in the shot put with a top throw of 41 feet, 7 inches for 706 points to her total. Torres smoked the competition in the long jump with a top jump of 19 feet, 8.25 inches for 850 points. She jumped nearly one foot further than the runner-up.
Torres ran the 800 meter run in 2:33.24, which was still a new collegiate best for her, but it earned her only 653 points.
UCLA's Tatum Souza won with a total of 4,033 points. BYU's Elizabeth Wilson finished second at 3,883 and Colorado's Brianne Beemer finished third with 3,854 points.
Torres compete in only two indoor meets as a true freshman in 2012. She injured her foot and missed the rest of the season, but received a medical redshirt to preserve her eligibility.
