State of the Action

Indoors, the triple jump was redemption for Rayvon Grey, who didn't make the Long Jump final.  Grey later went on to break 26-ft in the Long Jump, so you could say it all worked out.  Outdoors, the Triple  Jump may be the tougher competition for Grey, as Tobi Tella has been dominating the event all season.  Tella was the Top American at Penn Relays, before improving his NY #1 (sans wind-gauge) at State Quals, breaking 50ft.  That makes him the man to beat in the pit, but there are plenty close to challenge.  Ronel Forde went 51ft indoors, and another miracle jump could clinch the weekend.  Matt Baker has been putting marks up there, and could again put pressure on the leader.  Anthony Butler is your top seed in the D2 competition, and will fight for the Fed Final.
