Crump, Bulldogs Shine On Day 1 at NCAA Indoor Championships

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – Mississippi State senior Cameron Crump ended day one of the 2023 NCAA Indoor Championships on the podium as the national runner-up in the men’s long jump, while also claiming eight team points for the Bulldogs. On the track, Navasky Anderson took care of business by qualifying for the finals of the men’s 800m, which will be held on Saturday in Albuquerque.
Crump’s fourth attempt of the competition put him in first place with a long jump of 8.39m (27-6.50), which tied his previous best and the MSU school record. He remained in first place until the sixth and final attempt for Arkansas senior Carey McLeod, who edged Crump with a mark of 8.40m (27-6.75). Crump went on to finish the national competition in second place and with the silver medal in hand. He now currently ranks No. 3 worldwide in the long jump.
Navasky Anderson also competed in the men’s 800m run on Friday night and finished second in his heat with a qualifying time of 1:49.67. Anderson will race in the 800m finals at 8:30 p.m. CT on Saturday. Anderson ran the fastest 800m ever by a Jamaican-born athlete with a time of 1:46.58 earlier this season.
Earlier in the day on Friday, Rosealee Cooper also represented Mississippi State by competing in the women’s 60m hurdles semifinals.
