“If I can line up with these boys, I know I can run with any girl,” said Roseby, the 2000 California state high school 100-meter champion. That was evident with the depth of the field on Sunday. Marshevet Hooker, the 2006 NCAA Indoor 60 and long-jump champion, finished third in 7.22. Angela Daigle-Bowen, the 2005 USATF 60 champion, was fourth in 7.23. As a UCLA sophomore in 2002, Roseby was hampered by a hamstring injury. In her senior year, Roseby competed with a broken hand in the 2004 NCAA championships. She was a 4×400 relay All-American on UCLA’s 2004 NCAA team championship squad. But Roseby has had very few accolades since college until hooking up with Morrison this year. “My first coach out of college didn’t work out too well,” Roseby said. “I didn’t want to live my life saying that I never gave it 100 percent. I just never thought that this wouldn’t work out. I have been through so much, this has to work out.” Roseby edged Carmelita Jeter, 7.16 seconds to 7.17 seconds, to post the fastest time of the year by an American and earn her first individual USATF title. After an injury-plagued career at UCLA, Roseby, 24, has blossomed this season after training with Western High coach Freddy Morrison. Roseby serves as an assistant coach at Western and runs with the boys in practice. BOSTON – Hasani Roseby can hold her own in the sprints against the boys she coaches at Western High in Las Vegas. The UCLA graduate showed she could also hang with the best women in the country in the 60 meters after her victory Sunday in the USA Track & Field Indoor Championships at the Reggie Lewis Center. Roseby had planned to only run in a few indoor meets for conditioning to prepare for the outdoor season, but that changed after running the 60 in 7.20 in the altitude of Flagstaff, Ariz., in her second race, the fastest qualifying time for the USATF Indoor Championships. “After that we thought, `Let’s go all the way,”‘ Roseby said. “I really didn’t have any expectations.” In the 60-meter hurdles, Sheena Johnson, a former teammate of Roseby’s at UCLA, finished fourth in 8.06. Taft graduate Frances Santin finished fifth in the women’s 800 in 2:05.33. It was won by Nikeya Green in a U.S.-leading 2:02.68. Christian Cantwell won the shot put at 71-3 in a competition featuring the top three throwers in the world. Reese Hoffa was second at 69-7 and Dan Taylor was third at 66-8. John Godina, the three-time World Outdoor champion, was fifth at 64-5, and Rhuben Willliams, the 1999 and 2000 state champion at Eagle Rock High, was sixth at 63-5 . 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
