Pre-Season Rankings: Class 5 Long Jump


8. Jessica Wegenka, Junior

Central (St. Joseph)

PR: 17-9

In 2017 Jessica was able to improve upon her previous PR (16-8.75) by just over a foot with jump of 17-9. She unfortunately had a disappointing end to her season as she was only able to place 5th at Districts with an uncharacteristic 16-0. I think she'll bounce back in her junior season and if she gets back up in the high 17's she has a very good chance of medaling at the State meet.

7. Aniya Stiles, Senior

Hazelwood Central

PR: 17-9.5

The Hazelwood Central Senior was a finalist last year in the Long Jump, but ended up being the odd person out placing 9th. However, if she had been able to jump her PR that she jumped at Sectionals (17-9.5) she would've been able to place 5th. I think she should be able to improve upon her finish from last year, and earn herself a State medal.
