Hickman sophomore Victoria Jackson won the long jump and was second in the 100-meter high hurdles and triple jump Wednesday at the 30-team Glendale Track & Field Invitational in Springfield, Mo. Jackson went 17-2 in the long jump and 34-3 3/4 in the triple jump.

Kewpies sophomore Galit Rudelson tied the school pole vault record of 9 feet, 6 inches and was sixth in the high hurdles. Junior Nasia Stevenson, sophomore Taalor Stevenson, freshman Dariana Wilson and sophomore Kuyana Guy placed fifth in the 4 x 200 relay, and Stevenson was second in the 400-meter run in 0:61. Sarah Hall placed fifth in the shot put and fourth in the discus.

“I was really pleased with the efforts that the girls put out,” Hickman coach Steve Kissane said. “We had the best conditions weather wise, it wasn’t cold, rainy, or windy as it was in past years. They just put out great effort.”

The boys will participate today in the Hillcrest Invitational at 4 p.m. in Springfield, Mo.
