Jumpers Shine on Final Day of Vanderbilt Invitational

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Florida State track and field team was led by triple jumpers Jeremiah Davis and Kayla Pinkard on Saturday at the Vanderbilt Invitational in Nashville, Tenn.

Both Davis and Pinkard posted all-time top ten marks for the Seminoles. The reigning ACC Men’s Field Performer of the Week, Davis showed out again this time in the triple jump. Davis put down a mark of 16.44m which is tied for the third-best mark in school history and ranks third in the NCAA this season.

In just her second collegiate meet, Pinkard shined in the triple jump with the ninth-best mark in school history (13.04m) to win the event.

In the men’s 400m dash, the Seminoles took the top three spots in the event as Sean Watkins Jr. (47.08) won the event with DaeQwan Butler (47.13) and Alex Collier (47.19) followed in second and third.
