Geubelle returns to Kansas and wins triple jump at Kansas Relays...

LAWRENCE, Kansas—2016 US Olympian and University Place resident Andrea Geubelle (above/photo courtesy University of Kansas) won the triple jump at the Kansas Relays Friday at Rock Chalk Park.

Geubelle rode a 4.4 meter-per-second wind and jumped 45-0.5 (13.73m) in the fifth round of jumps in her competitive return to her alma mater to easily win the competition, in a mark that would have tied for the seventh best in the world this season, had the wind been under 2.0 meters per second.


With both the University of Washington and Washington State University competing in The Dual Sunday in Seattle, Seattle University is the only school in either Division I or II that is idle this weekend.

Meanwhile, all four of Washington’s Division II schools will converge upon Centralia, as Central Washington hosts the Spike Arlt Invitational after competing in Southern California last weekend.

Berry is in the pool for the mixed 4 x 400 relay, while Loxsom and Kidder are in the 4 x 800 relay pool, both of which will be contested Sunday.

NOTE:  The University of Kansas, Central Washington University and the IAAF contributed to this report.
