Marshall beat a slew of professionals including Christina Clemons, who has represented the USA at multiple world championship events.

Her time also saw her matching her personal best, which was set in Lubbock, Texas, last Jan.

Marshall has no indoor eligibility remaining for LSU since the NCAA decided not to give 2020 indoor track and field seniors another year of eligibility even though the 2020 NCAA Indoor Championships never took place.
