At the NCAA BIG 12 Conference Indoor Championships, Bright, competing for Kansas State, leaped 13.60m, a PB, to earn herself the silver medal.The Lindener recorded another PB of 6.22m in the long jump but it was only good enough for a fourth place finish. Joanna Archer of Texas Tech helped her school to win the overall title at NCAA BIG 12 Conference Indoor Championship.
The former West Demerara Secondary School student ran a PB of 2 minutes 6 seconds in the women’s 800m finals to finish fifth.
