Ofili Makes The Bowerman Watch List For The Third Time
Fresh off winning event titles at the SEC Championships, Nigeria’s Favour Ofili was named to The Bowerman Watch List, post-conference edition, on Wednesday.
Ofili swept the 100m and 200m at the SEC Outdoor Championships in highly-anticipated races with fellow Watch List member Abby Steiner. In the 100m, she equaled her PR of 10.93, although that wind reading (-0.7) was not as favorable as in her previous 10.93 (2.0).
That also avenged her only loss to a collegian in the 100m this year, having lost to Steiner in early April. In the 200m, she clocked 22.04, the =No. 3 performance all-time collegiately – she, of course, owns one of the faster performances with her CR 21.96 in mid-April.
Her SEC races came after running the second leg on LSU’s 4×100m relay, which the Tigers won in a seasonal-best 42.59.
Ofili also ran a wind-aided 10.90 in April. Indoors, she was runner-up in the NCAA 200 while taking seventh in the 60.
This is Ofili’s third Watch List appearance.
