Caroline Jansen’s long jump mark ended up being a shorter distance then it was in 2013, but she still finished in eighth place at the Class A state meet on Friday at Hamline University.


In 2013 her jump measured 16-06.75, and on Friday Jansen finished with a mark of 16-04.75. This still helped the Ashby-Brandon-Evansville athlete finish one spot higher on the podium as she took ninth last season.
