Albuquerque, N.M. --- For the first time in program history San José State has a Mountain West Indoor Track & Field long jump champion. Cambree Harbaugh saved her best for last, jumping 6.06 meters on the final attempt to win the event.
"Cambree came up clutch on the fifth and final jump," said Director of Track & Field Jeff Petersmeyer. "That's just the way Cambree jumps. I was never worried about it, I was just hoping we could get a good one on the final attempt and she did it. She's had a really solid indoor season setting personal records and finishing on top today."
Harbaugh, the senior from Meridian, Idaho, becomes the third Spartan long jumper to take first place at a Mountain West Championships joining Kelsey Johnson-Upshaw (2015) and Destiny Longmire (2017) who were both outdoor champions.
Harbaugh earned 10 team points for San José State with her victory and a total of four Spartans combined to score 16 points in the event.
Johnson-Upshaw scored three points with a 5.90-meter distance and a sixth place finish. Longmire jumped 5.88 meters and scored two points with a seventh place result. Brittany Brown captured one point for finishing eighth with a distance of 5.67 meters.
With 17 total points after five championship events, San José State moved up to a tie for seventh place with UNLV in the field of 11 schools.
Brown will have another scoring opportunity tomorrow in the finals of the 60-meter hurdles. She clocked an 8.51 in the preliminaries to finish fourth among the field of 21 and advance to the final. Jayla Williams also advanced to the finals with her time of 8.73 in the preliminaries.
"It's great to have both Brittany and Jayla moving onto the finals in the 60-hurdles," Petersmeyer said.
Jennifer Sandoval highlighted San José State's day in the distance events by running a 17:07.29 in the 5,000 meters. Her time converts to 16:39 which is both a personal record for Sandoval and a San José State record. Sandoval set the previous school record of 17:07.36 at last year's MW Indoor Championships.
"She ran really tough," said Petersmeyer. "She came up just a little short of scoring in ninth place but I'm really proud of her. She looked great from the get-go running at altitude. I think this is the best she has looked at any conference meet."
Colorado State is currently in first place with 45 points. In order: Air Force, New Mexico, Boise State, Fresno State and Nevada follow behind the Rams all within five points of each other.
The 2018 Mountain West Indoor Track & Field Championships conclude tomorrow with finals for sprints and hurdles plus the triple jump. Follow all of the action with live results and online video streaming via FloTrack by visiting the Mountain West Championship Central Page.
