Kareem Mersal and William Nolan own the top spot in the Long Jump this season, while Cowgirls Sadie McMullen and Shayla Howell pace at the two and three spot on the women’s side of the event. Nolan also owns the third best mark in the Triple Jump this season.
Colton Paller and Kirk Unland lead a strong group of throwers as they sit in the top spot in the Discus and Hammer respectively. Hap Frketich sits in the two spot for the Hammer, while Mary Carbee has the third best throw on the women’s side. Albert Steiner and Seth Bruxvoort sit one-three in the 3,000M Steeplechase, and Brandon McGuire rounds out the list in third at 400M Hurdles.
