Heptathlon Final Results

AUSTIN, Texas
  – Redshirt senior Jordan Gray concluded her career at Kennesaw State finishing  seventh in the heptathlon at the NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships at Mike A. Myers Stadium on Saturday.
 
"I am so proud of Jordan," assistant coach Agne Eggerth said. "She put a lot of work, sweat and tears into this season so it is great to see all the hard work pay off. For her to finish her career at KSU with a new school record for points in the heptathlon and earning First Team All-America honors for the third time in her career I would say is a history making success."
 
Gray concluded with a career-best 5846 points to establish a new school record. She earned First Team All-America Honors for the second time in the heptathlon. She is the only Owl female to ever score points in an NCAA Outdoor Championship. Gray's two points earned the women's team a tie for 62nd place overall at the meet.
 
She opened day two of the heptathlon with a leap of 6.18m (20'3.5") in the long jump which was good for second in the event and set a new school record. Gray tossed the javelin 39.81m (130'7") which was good for seventh in the event and the second-longest throw in program history. In her final collegiate event, Gray ran a career-best time of 2:20.92 in the 800m to set the school record.
 
Junior Paris Williams was unable to finish the decathlon after suffering and injury on Thursday. Williams and the Owls will return in the fall and begin preparing for the 2020 track and field season.
