The Scoop: Hunter, Troutner Impress At UVU Invitational

A Big Race In The 400mH

Clayton Valley Charter (CA) School's Aiden Jackman had a very impressive outing in the 400m long hurdles, scoring a US No. 1 time of 52.85 seconds. 

It marked a nearly 2-second improvement from the former No. 1 mark of 54.36, and put Jackman, a senior jumper who had previously only gone 56 seconds in the 400mH, in line to potentially score a 50-point effort later in the season -- and perhaps even qualify for the 2018 World Junior Championships for Team USA later on in the season. 

Jackman also won the 110mH in a US No. 11 time of 14.03.

Another Leaping No. 1

The long jump leaderboard is going to be wild in the next few weeks. 

But for the time being, St. Mary's College (CA) School's Malcolm Clemons posted a new US No. 1 and winning mark of 24-5.25 at Stanford. 

It marked Clemons' first mark over 24 feet and was over a six-inch improvement from his former previous best. 

High Jump Talent 

Mark another 7-foot high jumper from California. 

Vista del Lago (CA) High's Jake Grimsman etched his name into the national leaderboard along fellow Californian Sean Lee of Trabuco Hills, tying his US No. 1 mark of 7-3 at Stanford. 

But that was no fluke. In previous weeks Grimsman has consistently been over 7 feet, logging two clearances of 7-2 and 7-0 leading into Stanford.
