Pre-Season Rankings: Class 4 Long Jump


8. Kerryaunna Ross, Junior

Raytown South

PR: 17-5.75

As a sophomore in 2017, Ross was able to set a big PR of 17-5.75 early on in the season. Unfortunately, she was only able to reach 17 one time after that. She placed 6th in her Sectional with a jump of 16-8.5. If she can get back in the 17's she will have a real good chance of medaling come Spring.

7. Eliana Liebman, Junior

Parkway Central

PR: 17-3.5

The Parkway Central Colt earned a 10th place finish in the Long Jump a year ago, and was All-State with a 7th place finish in the Triple Jump. She was able to PR in July at the USATF Region 9 Championships as well, jumping 17-3.5. With a jump like that at State next year, she very well could win her second State Medal.
