Track – Records fall at Cavalier Night Relays

Caniggia RaynorOVERLAND PARK, KS – JCCC throwers Monet Jackson (Blue Springs, Mo.) and Caniggia Raynor (Greater Portmore, Jamaica) had the Fieldhouse buzzing Friday evening, as both set new Fieldhouse and JCCC records in the weight throw. 

Jackson was the first to make history. She posted a record winning mark of 56-1.75, breaking her record mark of 54-0.5 set last year at the Relays.  She owns all five of the top throws in school history. Jackson also finished runner-up in the shot put with a heave of 40-7.5, which earns her an automatic bid to indoor nationals in March. 

For Raynor, this was his second straight record-breaking meet. He set the school record last week at 58-10 and placed second at Iowa State. This week he shattered that by nearly four feet, and was flirting the Jamaican world record. Raynor posted the record mark of 62-8.5 (19.11m) on his first of four attempts. He owns four of the top five all-time marks posted in team history. Raynor also placed fourth in the shot put with a mark of 46-4. 

One other JCCC athlete set a new Fieldhouse record during the evening.  Sophomore Angela Mancuso (Shawnee, Kan.) cruised to a first-place finish in the 400-meters with a new stadium standard of 1:02.61. That broke the previous mark by 0.14 set two weeks earlier by Mandy Wilson of Highland at the JCCC Invitational. 

Other event winners for JCCC were: Josh Schirmer (men’s 60m hurdles-8.58); Kamp Wiebe (men’s mile-4:48.71); Abi Hartzell (women’s 3,000m-11:47.69) and the women’s 4x400 relay. 

In addition to these erformances, the following athletes posted marks that automatically qualified them for the NJCAA Indoor Championships. 

Jordan Ross – women’s high jump (5-1.25, 2nd)
Nicolas Ramirez – men’s high jump (6-6.75, T-2nd)
Jessica Tingle – women’s pole vault (10-6, 2nd)
