Lunch, dinner, and movie dates might suffer, but omas has a strong support system on the Hawk- eye roster.

Our schedules are kind of same, so that's kind of a social life." omas turned in impressive performances at the Razorback Invitational from Jan. 29-30 in Fayette- ville, Arkansas. She placed 14th in the long jump with a collegiate indoor best of 19-feet-9 ½. at ranks second in Iowa history in the indoor long jump. e following day, omas set a PR in the 60 hur- dles with a time of 8.58 seconds, seventh all-time in Hawkeye history. omas finished 11th, but did not advance to the finals. "She has really taken off and I'm excited to see how the rest of the season transpires," Woody said.
