KU track sets school records


— Kansas University’s Andrea Geubelle and Natalia Barntovskaya each set school track-and-field records Friday at the Armory Collegiate Invitational.

Geubelle won the long jump with a school- and event-record leap of 6.69 meters (21 feet, 111⁄2 inches). It’s the best collegiate jump in the nation and sixth-best in the world this season.

Bartnovskaya won her fourth straight pole-vault title by clearing 4.30 meters (14-11⁄4).

KU’s Kyle Clemons was second in the 500 in a school-record 1:01.32, and Anastasiya Muchkayev was second in women’s shot put (16.15 meters/53-0).

Andrea's distance or event seems wrong. Is 21' a good LONG jump. A triple should be in the 40' range.

You are correct. The story has been updated above.

If it's not basketball or football you get garbage reporting, Good job staff reporters.

They do not have track and field on the app! They have X Country, but no track and field. Oh well!
