CEDAR FALLS – A pair of girls’ top-20 finishes and despite only one counting long jump, Dylan Jacobs’ finish were among the Clarksville highlights of the Dickinson Indoor Relays held at the UNI-Dome on Monday and Tuesday, March 6-7.

Kori Wedeking ran to 18th in the 3,000-meter run and Emma Poppe finished in a tie for 18th in the high jump for the Indians on Monday.

Jacobs got one jump in at 18 feet, 7 inches, which was good for 51st in the preliminaries out of 112 total competitors, before he landed a spike on his palm on the second attempt, immediately springing up and running to the medical area on Tuesday.
