Burks impressed more than anyone else by far. With her 13.23m triple jump mark, she shot all the way to No. 2 in the NCAA and took a school record made in 2006. Burks entered the meet holding the indoor school record in the event.
Her mark of 13.23m was No. 1 in the NCAA. The mark is still good for No. 5 in the country, firmly cementing Burks as one of the best jumpers and overall athletes in the nation.
Her success has Burks setting her goals high for herself and her teammates come May and June.
“We’re going to take first,” Burks said. “No doubt about it. (We’re going to) sweep the conference titles, get to the national meet and keep going as far as I can.”
