The Triple Jump was a huge event for the team tonight, with Colton Doll and Zach Denning both having big PRs and outplacing their “seed”. Colton jumped 42’6.5″ good for 2nd place and the 15th best jump in Kaneland history! Zach, in his first year out for Track had a PR of 41’7.5″, which took 4th place and is the 22nd best jump in Kaneland History!
In order to score 143.5, it takes an entire team and our Knights showed just how strong of a team we are. These men competed hard all night and were there for each other before, during, and after each race. They did things the Knights Way!
