Feb. 27, 2018


New Orleans, La. --- At the conclusion of indoor conference championships week the San José State women’s track & field team is ranked first in the country in the triple jump and eighth in the long jump according to the United States Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA).
“The event squad rankings are a nice comparison of talent in each event by every team in Division I,” said SJSu Director of Track & Field Jeff Petersmeyer. “SJSU was the only school ranked in the top 8 in both horizontal jumps. While it's only two events, it just shows you what a talented group of jumpers we have been fortunate to work with here.”
Nicole Iloanya jumped a new school-record 12.95 meters at the Mountain West Championships, helping San José State’s average jump up to 12.33 meters which tops the nation. Cambree Harbaugh completes SJSU’s one-two punch in the triple jump with her best mark of 12.34 meters.
The Spartans’ average distance in the long jump is 5.99 meters, ranking eighth in the country. Destiny Longmire’s 6.24 meters at the Ed Jacoby Invite is SJSU’s top mark, with Harbaugh’s 6.09 meters at the Air Force Invitational being second. Both jumps ranks inside the country’s top-45 nationally.
San José State begins its outdoor season on March 16-17 at the Hornet Invitational.
