Perry leaps to All-America status,
Cooksey advances to finals


BOSTON, Mass.—University of Southern Indiana women’s track and field freshman jumper/sprinter Candace Perry (Anderson, Indiana) became the second jumper in school history to earn All-America honors Friday evening at the Reggie Lewis Center.

Perry recorded a mark of 18 feet, 7 ¾ inches with her first jump to finish sixth in the long jump at the NCAA II Indoor Championships. Perry joins fellow teammate Abby Boberg (Bicknell, Indiana), who earned All-America honors in the high jump at last year’s indoor championships, on USI’s All-America list.

Sophomore runner Heather Cooksey (Brownsburg, Indiana) also competed Friday evening, finishing fifth in the prelims of the mile to advance to Saturday’s finals. Cooksey ran the race in 4:57.29, less than a second off the top time.

Cooksey will compete in the finals Saturday at 3:10 p.m. (EST).
