Kansas’ Conley fourth in long jump


— Kansas University sophomore Sydney Conley earned a fourth-place finish in the long jump Friday night at the NCAA Indoor.

“I can’t be mad today, I walked away with a PR,” Conley said. “That’s all I was looking for today. Whatever place that PR would put me in, I was going to be happy with, so fourth place is fine. It’s a great achievement to be an All-American and I hope I can keep this up for the next three years.”

Natalia Bartnovskaya tied for 10th place in the pole vault. The meet was Bartnovskaya’s last as a Jayhawk; she no longer has eligibility remaining for the outdoor season.

Another senior, Diamond Dixon, was in action Friday night looking to continue her journey to a second national title in the indoor 400 meters. The Houston product was unable to make it out of the semifinals, however, after she failed to tally one of the eight fastest times out of the 16-women field. Dixon took third in her heat and 11th overall after she clocked in with a time of 52.92.
