BLOOMINGTON, IND. - For the first time this season, the Tennessee State Track & Field teams left the state to compete as TSU traveled to the University of Indiana to take part in the two-day Gladstein Invitational, which ended Saturday.

Sophomore Ashontae Jackson impressed with her jumping and running as she won the long jump at 19 feet, 7.5 inches. She was also a part of the 4X400 meter relay team, along with Gabrielle Todd, Breanna Adams and Jasmine Owens, that clocked in at 3:50.67 which was good enough for second place behind Ohio State.

In the triple jump, a distance of 39 feet, 1/4 inches gave Ja'Lyn Burr third place, while Quanisha Sales' also claimed third with a time of 25.22 seconds in the 200 meters

The highlights for the men came in the high jump and long jump. Daryl Rice cleared 6 feet, 8.75 inches to finish first in the high jump, two inches higher than second place. In the high jump, junior Royce Dates came in third with a distance of 23 feet, 4 1/2 inches.


TSU is off next week before returning back to the Gentry Center to host the TSU Invite on Saturday Feb. 2.
