ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – NCAA title. Collegiate record. Repeat.

Florida’s Jasmine Moore has demonstrated an ability the past two years to eliminate any potential drama in the women’s long jump and triple jump competitions at the NCAA Division 1 Indoor Championships, with Friday being the latest exceptional example for the greatest combination jumper in collegiate history.

A year after producing the collegiate all-time indoor mark on her first attempt in the women’s triple jump final at the Birmingham CrossPlex in Alabama, Moore delivered another emphatic statement in the opening round of the long jump at the Albuquerque Convention Center.

Tennessee’s Jacious Sears ran a personal-best 7.04, with Georgia freshman Kaila Jackson matching the World Under-20 indoor record by clocking 7.07.
