Iowa freshman Nylah Perry caps huge weekend with 4th-place finish in Big Ten 400!

Winslow’s Nylah Perry, an Iowa freshman, placed 4th in the 400 Saturday at the Big Ten Championships.

Perry ran the two-fastest races of her life the last two days at SPIRE Institute in Geneva, Ohio, PR’ing in 54.43 in the trials Friday and running 54.54 in Saturdays finals.

With her 54.43, Perry moved into the No. 9 spot on the all-time Iowa indoor 400 performance list. She’s also the No. 12 freshman in the U.S.

Perry came into the meet with a PR of 55.03 from the B1G Invitational earlier this month on the same track.

At Winslow, Perry ran 55.97 as a freshman outdoors at the Meet of Champions at Northern Burlington, and her indoor PR was 56.19 when she won the Meet of Champions last March at Ocean Breeze.

Perry is teammates at Iowa with former Winslow teammate Tionna Tobias, who placed 5th in the pentathlon and 6th in the high hurdles this weekend at the Big Ten meet.
