Geubelle takes first for KU track


— Kansas University sophomore Andrea Geubelle took first place in the women’s long jump on Friday afternoon at the Arkansas Last Chance Meet.

Geubelle jumped 6.18m (20-03.50 feet.) on her fourth attempt. The mark was her longest of the year.

Fellow sophomore Francine Simpson also had a top jump of 6.18m (20-03.50 feet.), but finished second because her next-best jump was shorter than Geubelle’s. The mark was Simpson’s second-best of the season.

Some KU track athletes will be in South Bend, Ind., today for the Alex Wilson Last Chance Meet, while others will be in Ames, Iowa, at the ISU NCAA Qualifier.
