FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. - Sarah Nambawa and Carl Morgan jumped in the preliminary rounds of the women's and men's triple jump at the NCAA Outdoor Championships, Friday.

Nambawa finished first overall out of 27 entries recording a mark of 45-3 (13.79m). Nambawa out jumped current NCAA 2009 standard holder Kim Williams of Florida State by almost four inches. Williams looks to be Nambawa's strongest competition in the event. Nambawa's jump was her second longest of the season and her career. She will compete in the finals of the triple jump on Saturday at 12 P.M.

Morgan placed 16th in the preliminary round of the men's triple jump with a leap of 51-5.5 (15.68m). The senior was unable to qualify for the final round on Saturday in the last meet of his illustrious collegiate career.

Full results for tomorrow's final day of competition will be available on goblueraiders.com and ncaa.com.
