Davis Improves His World Lead in the Long Jump at Razorback Invitational

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Jeremiah Davis continued his terrific start to the season as he increased his world lead in the long jump on the first day of the Razorback Invitational in Fayetteville, Ark.

After jumping 8.17m at the Clemson Invitational two weeks ago to take the world lead, Davis kept his world lead secure with a mark of 8.21m which he accomplished on his first jump. In the three jumps that Davis took, he went 8.21m, 8.04m and 8.21m. His mark of 8.21m now puts him tied for second with Bowerman winner Ngoni Makusha on FSU’s all-time top ten list.

Caisa Marie-Lindfors and Amani Heaven both had solid days in the shot put. Marie-Lindofrs finished third in the event with a mark of 15.78m and Heaven finished fifth with a mark of 15.42m.

Freshman Dajaz DeFrand had a terrific day in the 200m dash as she finished seventh in a stacked field with a time of 23.51. Her time puts her eighth on FSU’s all-time top 10 list for the event.

Ella Madson got the day started for the Seminoles in the Pentathlon. Madson put together the fifth-best performance in school history recording 3525 points.

The Noles will be back in action tomorrow beginning at 10:10 a.m.
