TEMPE, Ariz. - Arizona State freshman Trevell Quinley will be one of two U.S. athletes competing in the men's long jump at the 2002 IAAF World Junior Track and Field Championships in Kingston, Jamaica, July 16-21.
The U.S. roster was selected at the 2002 U.S. Junior National Track & Field Championships, June 21-22 in Palo Alto, Calif. In the long jump competition, Quinley placed sixth with a mark of 23 feet, 4.5 inches.
Quinley, a native of Tracy, Calif., was the 2002 Pac-10 runner-up in the long jump where he notched his outdoor personal-best mark of 24 feet, 10 inches.
During the 2002 indoor season, Quinley earned his first career All-America honor at the NCAA Indoor Track & Field Championships. Although placing 14th with a mark of 23-11.5, he was one of the top eight American finishers in the event.
Quinley was an automatic qualifier for the NCAA Indoor Championships with an indoor best leap of 25-10 at the Mountain T's Invitational where he placed second.
Quinley is currently training in the Bahamas with the U.S. team and competed in the Texaco Top Athletes Pre-World Meet yesterday and today.
