EKU TRACK & FIELD | Claitt Making EKU History
04/13/2017 06:50 PM
EKU sophomore track and field athlete Tequan Claitt broke a 35-year-old school record on Saturday at WKU’s Hilltopper Relays.
Claitt, a high jumper, jumped 7’-5.75” to take over as the owner of the best high jump in school history.
The previous record was a 7’-5” jump, which was set by Ken Glover in 1982.
“I actually remember my first practice,” said Claitt. “I came out to the board and looked at it… I always wanted to put my name up there.”
The jump did not just only break school records though. It was also the top high jump in the NCAA and it was the second-best jump in the world this year.
But, like any competitor, Claitt is still not satisfied.
“I still have a long way to go,” said Claitt.
EKU track and field will return to action on Friday at the Centre Twilight competition in Danville, Ky.
