Roebuck Competes at NCAA East Regional

May 27, 2006

GREENSBORO, N.C. - UCF senior Tiffany Roebuck competed in the hammer throw on Saturday at the NCAA East Regional Track and Field Championship at North Carolina A&T's Irwin Belk Track. Roebuck entered the meet ranked ninth in the region.

On Saturday, Roebuck failed to reach the finals of the hammer throw after fouling on each of her preliminary attempts. She was competing in the regionals for the third-consecutive year. The Mary Ester, Fla. native qualified for the regionals in March after shattering the school record with a toss of 192-feet, three inches at the Disney Relays.

Roebuck was one of three Golden Knights who participated at the event. Senior Diana Chin and sophomore Victoria Chin were both in action on Friday.
