High School Track and Field: Iola Mustangs
In a team performance dotted with personal bests for the Iola Mustangs and Fillies, Elysia Kunkler took it a step forward, breaking the school record in the long jump at the Paola track meet on Thursday.
Kunkler had tied the record at the teams preseason showcase and broke it Thursday afternoon with a jump of 16 feet, 11.5 inches. The previous record of 16 feet, 11 inches was set by Jolene Riley in 1977.
Kunkler is now the owner of two school records after she topped the 100m high hurdle record with a time of 15.5 seconds last season.
