No. 10 Academy of Art at Jacksons Invite
NAMPA, Ind. -- A small contingent of Academy of Art athletes closed out the Jacksons Invitational with multiple impressive times in Saturday's sprint events. Most notably, Jordan Edwards as well as Ronald Spears, Jr. excelled in the 60m dash and 400m respectively.
The men's 60m dash was a sight to see Saturday as Edwards and Spears, Jr. each delivered personal records. Beginning with the prelim, Edwards got himself into third out of 40 overall with a 6.93 and Spears, Jr. pushed his way into seventh with a new PR of 7.00. Those times would both be bested in the finals, however, where Edwards flew to a 6.85 to make him second in both the competition and on ART U's all-time list. Spears, Jr. rose into third on that list (fifth in the finals) just behind Edwards with a sizeable improvement on his time (6.93).
