Today In Blue Demon History:

On April 15, 2005, sophomore Ryan Thompson and senior Webster Jones hit BIG EAST qualifying marks to win jumping events as a select squad from the men’s track and field team competed at the Elmhurst College Invitational. Thompson started the day by reaching 6.75m in the long jump to take first place and pass the qualifying standard of 6.65m.  The jump surpassed his previous best mark of the season, a March 25 distance of 6.67m. Jones followed Thompson’s lead by clearing the bar at 1.93m to win the high jump and eclipse the qualifying standard of 1.91m.  His performance was also a personal best. Click here for the full story.
