Records, National Marks By Tennesseans At Arkansas Invite

First Ever Over 50

Just one year ago, Zavien Wolfe's farthest triple jump indoor or out was 44-7. Less than 12 calendar months later, he's now the first jumper in Tennessee High School history to eclipse the fifty foot barrier in the event. The senior from Memphis Central leapt to the top of the national rankings with this jump of 50' - 0.5" at the Arkansas High School Invitational.

The mark is also the #40 Mark All Time in the USA for indoors. Wolfe also ranks #2 in the Long Jump with his mark at KYA. 

Ware Lowers 60m Dash

Fellow Warrior Jordan Ware lowered his state leading time from 6.88 at KYA down to 6.80 in Fayetteville on Saturday with this dominating performance in the prelims of the event. 

Ware placed second in the finals but his prelim time was the fastest for the meet. He currently ranks #4 in the US and #2 All-Time in the event for Tennesseans by just .01 seconds. The current all time record holder is Justin Emerson of CAK who set the mark of 6.79 in 2010. 


Noble Secures Runner Up

There was some serious speed at this meet. White Station's Courtland Noble, who won the KYA 200m Dash, ran just .11 seconds slower in the prelims of the 200m and failed to qualify for the finals in the event in Arkansas. He made up for it though in the 400m with this runner up effort improving his state lead by over a second from 49.78 down to 48.49.

Like Ware, this also ranks US #4 for 2023.
