The Buffalo Bills wide receiver topped the world list this weekend when he jumped 8.45m at the Meeting Region Guadeloupe. The performance improved his personal best by a whopping 0.12m. The last time Goodwin was on this good of a trajectory was in 2012, when he claimed the NCAA title for Texas, went on to win the Olympic Trials and ultimately finished 10th at the Olympic Games.

The North Carolina State senior threw down a massive personal best in the 1500m to claim the ACC title with the No. 2 time in the NCAA this season. Moye put on a clinic in the 1500m with the victory in 4:11, which stands as a school, meet and facility record. She continued her momentum by finishing second in the 5K. In total, she added 18 points to North Carolina State’s team score. 




Colby Gilbert Breaks 5K School Record and PRs in 1500m

The Washington Husky continued his breakthrough season by winning the men’s 5K at the Pac-12 Championships in a winning time of 13:35.
