Iyanla Kollock opened her sophomore season at Rutgers with a win Saturday evening at the TCNJ Invite at the Armory.
Kollock, a graduate of Our Lady of Mercy Academy of Newfield, ran 7.68, finishing about half a meter ahead of Krystal Mitchell of Central State, who was second in 7.74. Kollock had led all qualifiers in the trials with a 7.69.
Kollock was runner-up in the 100 at the Metropolitan Championships last spring and made the finals of the Big 10 200 indoors as a freshman.
Kollock’s 60 PR is 7.59 from IC4As last March at Boston University, where she placed fourth, so she was less than a 10th of a second off that in her season opener.
