Todd says she’s done as a Duck
EUGENE — Jasmine Todd’s track and field career at Oregon is over, the redshirt junior announced in an Instagram post Friday afternoon.
“My time here as a Duck has been amazing,” wrote Todd, who was with the team in Lawrence, Kan., for the NCAA West Preliminary meet. “MANY MANY MANY downs and MANY MANY MANY MANY ups! So many PR’s have been made and friendships built. Not how I want to end my career here at University of Oregon, but due to unforeseen circumstances (not injury related but out of my control) I have to end my season early. Wishing the best of luck to my teammates with the rest of regionals and going into NCAA’s.”
Todd was entered in the 100 meters and long jump this weekend but didn’t compete in either.
She also ran the opening leg of the Ducks’ NCAA-leading 4x100 team that set the school record earlier this season at 42.68 seconds. Todd is also the school record-holder in the long jump at 22-5¼ and is tied for the school record in the 100 with Jenna Prandini at 10.92.
Last summer she finished third in the 100 and fourth in the long jump at the U.S. Outdoor Track & Field Championships to make the World Championships team where she won a silver medal as a member of the 4x100 team.
Maybe her greatest moment in an Oregon uniform came at the 2015 Pac-12 championships when she scored 35 points in five events with wins in the triple jump and 100.
Todd wasn’t having the best season for the Ducks this spring. She has a top time of 11.20 in the 100 and failed to make the final at the Pac-12 meet, where she also made her long jump debut with a mark of 20-7.
