More than a number: Video feature of University Place resident Andrea Geubelle...

Courtesy of the University of Kansas, here is a video piece on University Place resident Andrea Geubelle (left/photo by Paul Merca), a ten-time All American in the long and triple jumps, and won three NCAA titles, the most in the school's history.

Her journey to the pinnacle of collegiate track & field hasn’t come without hardships though. Despite some bumps along the way, Geubelle’s constant drive and dedication has pushed her on the verge of collegiate and American track & field history.

Last weekend, Geubelle ran on Kansas' 4 x 100 meter relay team as they won in 44.92 at the John McDonell Invitational in Fayetteville, Arkansas.

She also made her collegiate debut in the 400 meters, winning her heat in 55.45, and finishing fifth overall.

This week, Geubelle competes at home in her final Kansas Relays as an undergrad in Lawrence, one of the country's most prestigious relay meets.

One result we missed on the recap was the Randall Cunningham Invitational on Saturday in Las Vegas, as several Eastern Washington athletes competed in the meet hosted by the University of Nevada at Las Vegas.

Jordan Arakawa won the hammer throw with a toss of 211-1 (64.34m), and Marlyn Anderson won the shot put at 56-6 3/4 (17.24m).

Brad Michael won the 400 in 47.69, and Michelle Coombs won the javelin at 155-4 (47.35m).

NOTE:  The sports information offices of the University of Kansas and Eastern Washington University contributed to this report.
