Los Angeles, Calif. --- San José State's Jade Childs finished in third place out of 18 entries in the Northridge Multis women's heptathlon which wrapped up Friday afternoon with the long jump, javelin throw and 800-meter sprint.

Childs' mark of 5.55 meters in the long jump earned her the second-most points (715) in the event, and her 29.32-meter throw in the javelin was the third best of the day. The field ended the meet with the 800-meter sprint which Childs finished in 2:43.90, good for 529 points.

"This was a decent opener," head coach Jeff Petersmeyer said. "She figured some things out at this meet that will help going forward. It's tough coming off of a redshirt, but Jade is a rock and this helped to get ready for more competitions coming up."

It was Child's first competition in a Spartan uniform after she redshirted the indoor season following a transfer from Northern Arizona.

Women's Outdoor track and field season continues Saturday when the team competes in San Francisco, Calif., at the Johnny Mathis Invitational.
