Yarbrough False-Starts in Hurdles FinalsJune 10, 2005 · MT Media Relations
Yarbrough, a junior from Hunters Lane High School in Nashville, was one of nine competitors in the event finals at the Alex G. Spanos Track Complex on the Sacramento State University campus. The 6-foot-3, 181-pounder was trying to become just the second hurdler in school history to earn All-America honors in the event (Ron Bramlett, 1999).
"This is very disappointing. It was my goal to become an All-American and it was within my grasp," Yarbrough said. "This will be a tough one to get over."
Florida's Josh Walker won his second straight outdoor championship with a time of 13.39 in the finals. Yarbrough was participating in his second national championships in a row after running in the high hurdles quarterfinals in 2004 in Austin, Texas.
