Thomas Johnson, Junior, Track and Field

 

Thomas Johnson (Purchase, N.Y./White Plains/Temple) broke the school record in the triple jump this past weekend at the IC4A Outdoor Championships up in Princeton, N.J. His jump of 15.57m (51'1") earned him bronze in the event, as potentially a spot in the NCAA Prelims in a couple weeks.

Johnson broke the record set by Victor Gilreath in 2010 of 15.45m (50'8.25"). His jump helped the Retrievers to a 19th place finish at the meet, after UMBC took second at the America East Championships just a week earlier.
