Depland Finishes Runner-up in Triple Jump at NCAA Indoor Championships

March 11, 2006

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Senior Brandy Depland posted a personal- and school-record mark of 44 feet, 9 3/4 inches, in the women’s triple jump to finish runner-up and lead Georgia Tech at the NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships on Saturday in Arkansas’ Randal Tyson Indoor Track.

Depland, a native of Katy, Texas, qualified for the finals on her final jump in the preliminaries and saved her lifetime-best jump for the final leap in the finals to garner All-America honors for the first time in her career during the indoor season. She finished behind Hampton’s Yvette Lewis with a mark of 45 feet, 1 1/2 inches.

“We’re really excited for Brandy,” said head coach Alan Drosky. “She’s had a great career and it was exciting to see her end her indoor season in that fashion. It was a great effort today.”

The Yellow Jackets finished in a tie for 26th place with eight points. The outdoor season will begin for Tech on March 18 in Auburn, Ala.
