At her personal best of 18' 9.25' Jorden O'Neal of Franklin High School in Elk Grove placed 4th for the Sac-Joaquin Section Marks in the women's long jump in Track and Field this season. Her outstanding performance met the National Silver Standard and placed her on the ESPN HS, Top 100 US Elite Athletes list.
Jorden says that she's not done yet, and that she plans to set a new record at the AAU Junior Olympic Games in Houston, Texas, on August 1, 2012. The Olympic Games will run from July 25th through August 4, 2012, where Jorden will attempt to improve her personal best in the Long Jump and shave seconds off her PR of 12.72 seconds in the 100 meter dash.
O'Neal is currently seeking corporate sponsorship. For more information, please contact 916-267-3919.
