Three school records, league title highlight Tech jumper's season
Viershanie Latham is so into jumping — the long jump, the triple jump — she even dreams about it sometimes.
“I guess that comes with trying to stay focused,” she said.
The Texas Tech junior’s indoor track and field season has been something out of a dream.
Latham broke the women’s school record in the triple jump three weeks in a row this winter, and her best mark — 43 feet, 8 inches — has her ranked eighth in the nation going into the NCAA indoor championships Friday and Saturday in Birmingham, Alabama.
