FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. - Led by junior All-American Tiffany Greer's first place finish in the women's long jump and freshman Trevell Quinley's runner-up effort in the men's long jump, both Arizona State's men's and women's squads stand in sixth place after day one of the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Indoor Track and Field Championships at the J. Walkup Skydome in Flagstaff, Ariz., Friday.
ASU's men accrued 12 points today, while the women earned 10 and are tied with Stanford, with one day left of competition tomorrow. Arizona is tops in the women's team race with 48 points, while UCLA leads the men with 41.
Greer won the women's long jump with a season best leap of 20 feet, 9.75 inches, an NCAA provisional qualifying mark. She also won her preliminary heat of the 60m in 7.51 seconds and advanced to tomorrow's final with the second fastest qualifying time.
