Girls Triple Jump
Despite No King, Triple Jump Gets It Wright

By SteveU

The first surprise of the girls triple jump was the absence of top-seeded Medford MA defending champ Arantxa King, the meet losing its only 42-footer.

Then the next surprise was how decisively Widefield CO sr Nyeisha Wright took over the event’s star power factor. She dominated, with her five legal jumps better than all but one of her competitors’ combined efforts. But what really stunned was her third-round 41-08, which would win by more than two feet.

Well, actually it was announced that Wright had improved her PR by 3 feet, but it was really about six inches. In any case, it was a monster effort, a US#4. She added a 40-04 and 40-10 in the finals to complete a great competition. Brook Pointe VA jr April Sinkler was one of the few others who jumped near her seed distance, her 39-05.75 thus getting her all the way from #9 to second. Bradford PA sr Erin Hannon was 3rd in 38-07.50.

“I was surprised, because I haven’t competed since state (May 20),” Wright said. “On my second jump, I scratched, then I just told myself to have fun, instead of worry. Then I jumped good.”

After Nyeisha Wright of Colorado Springs went 38-9 in the
first round and fouled her second jump, there were serious doubts. But then she
put it all together and spanned 41-8 third time down the runway and that was
For icing on the cake, the senior star went 40-4 ¼ in round five and 40-10
¼ in round six, making it three jumps that topped runnerup April Sinkler's 39-
5 ¾ for Stafford, Va. High. Best of the rest in the 20-jumper field was
Bradford, Pa. senior Erin Hannon at 38-7 ½.
Wright's 41-8 was the fourth longest winning mark in NON annals but no
threat to Erica McLain's meet record 44-1 ¼ for Plano, Texas in 2004.
