Jan. 27, 2017

Seattle, Wash. --- San José State’s Jade Childs and Kolbi Sims completed their first pentathlon of the 2017 indoor season on Friday at the UW Invitational. Childs finished in seventh place – fourth among collegians – with 3,538 total points, and Sims ended in 12th place with 3,281 points.

“I thought we did really well in the first three events,” said Spartans’ Director of Track & Field Jeff Petersmeyer. “This gave us an idea of what we need to work on the rest of the season building up to the conference championship.”

Childs was the top collegiate finisher in the day’s first event, the 60-meter hurdles, with a time of 8.77. The senior was the second-leading collegiate in the high jump (1.64m) and the shot put (11.44m). She led all collegians heading into the final event, the 800-meters.

Sims clocked a 10.18 in the 60-meter hurdles, jumped 1.64 meters in the high jump, good for fourth among collegians, and her shot put traveled 10.57 meters.

Both Childs and Sims hit 5.24 meters in the long jump. Sims ended the day with a 2:36.86 in the 800 meters while Childs ran a 2:42.33.

Next on the San José State women’s track and field team’s schedule is the Armory Invitational in New York on February 3-4.
