COLUMBUS, Ohio — The Ohio State women’s track and field team opened competition Friday night at the 2009 Kentucky Invitational in Lexington, Ky.

Freshman Alison Roquet was the highlight of the night for the Buckeyes, placing third in the triple jump with a leap of 12.18m. Roquet tied Marshall’s Andrea Jackson, but since Roquet fouled on her second attempt, she placed third instead of tying for second with Jackson. Sarah Nambawa from Middle Tennessee State won the event by more than a foot at 13.19m.  

Action resumes tomorrow with the long jump, high jump, shot put and running events. Follow the link above for live results throughout the meet.
