Longmire Takes Down Two School Records At Ed Jacoby Invitational
Jan. 13, 2018
Nampa, Idaho --- San José State's Destiny Longmire set two new school records on Saturday to highlight the Spartans' day at the Ed Jacoby Invitational.
Longmire took first place with a new school-record distance of 6.24 meters in the long jump. She beat her own record which she set just last month in the 2017-18 indoor season opener at the Jackson's Invite (12/9/17). The mark ranks eighth among all NCAA Division I long jumpers heading into the day.
The top three spots in the long jump were all occupied by Spartans. First, Longmire the sophomore from Moreno Valley, Calif., and then Cambree Harbaugh in second place (5.83m) and Kelsey Johnson-Upshaw in third place (5.70m).
The second school record of the day came in the 60-meter dash where Longmire clocked a 7.55 to take first place in the finals. She beat current teammate Caitlin Wilson's previous record of 7.61 turned in at the Run For The Dream meet on Feb. 16, 2015.
After qualifying in the top-seven of the prelims with a 7.75, Longmire turned on the jets for the school record in the finals. Wilson and Spartan teammate Madiha Raza also qualified for the finals alongside Longmire.
Continuing with the sprints Sarahvaughn King showed solid progress in the 200 and the 400 dashes. She finished second in the 200, running a 24.67 which beat her time of 24.83 in the Jackson's Open. King had a similar result in the 400, clocking another season-best 58.82 to finish in fifth place.
In the high jump Kolbi Sims and Natalie Gutierrez finished first and second respectively, both registering 1.69 meters as their top jump. It's the second day in a row that Sims has matched her personal record after doing it as part of the pentathlon on Friday. Gutierrez has a high-jump PR of 1.70 meters in outdoor, but her 1.69 meters on Saturday is an indoor best.
"It was a solid January opener for us," said Spartans' Director of Track & Field Jeff Petersmeyer. "We had Destiny break the two school records and a lot of other seasonal and indoor bests."
Indoor track and field season continues on Jan. 26-27 at the Air Force Invitational. SJSU is also competing on Jan. 27 at the University of Washington Invitational.
