Dennis Boone rules the pits!

A senior from Thomas Dale High School in Chester, Va., Boone completed a sweep of the long jump titles in Nike national competition. Boone won Saturday’s long jump with a mark of 24-5.

Last March in Landover, Md., he won the Nike Indoor title. “I was trying to pull of the double to show people that I am the best jumper in the nation,” said Boone, who’s been hampered by a hamstring injury for much of the outdoor season. “I haven’t been jumping a lot, but I still thought I could come out here and do pretty good.

The bronze medalist at the 2004 outdoor nationals, Boone is earmarked for St. Augustine’s College in Raleigh, N.C. He hopes to compete this summer for U.S. age group teams at international meets. “I’ve just been trying to get myself back together to prepare for Juniors and Worlds,” he said.

Boone was in fourth place after two jumps and passed Robert Rands (Bellevue, NE), Keith Graham (Charleston, SC) and Matt Brock (Houston, TX) in round three.

Rands finished second with a best of 24-0 ¾.

Graham (Charleston, SC) took the bronze with a best of 23-11 ½. He was also third in Friday’s triple jump competition.

Wind readings for all jumps were within the allowable range.
