From the video here (posted on YouTube by MileSplit) Tara Davis surprised even herself when she broke the HS Girls Long Jump National Record with a mark of 21.11" last week. It was during the Dumanis Sports Group Prep meet in Texa. The previous record had stood for 36 years.
This week Tara took home the meet record in the Long Jump at the Simplot Games in Idaho. That jump was 21.02.75.
Way to Go Tara! Wonder what other accomplishments she will add to her list before the school year is over.
