DELAWARE, Ohio — Jamie Ruginski of the University of Southern Maine broke his own school record while finishing second in the long jump Thursday at the NCAA Division III track and field championships.
Ruginski, a junior from Buxton who finished third in the long jump at the national indoor championships, posted a best jump of 24 feet, 01/4 inches. Josh Colbert of Ohio Northern won with a leap of 24-53/4.
Ruginski also teamed with Daniel Webb of Sanford, Jeremy Collins of Standish and Kevin Desmond of Monmouth to set a school record in its 1,600-meter relay heat with a time of 3 minutes, 12.94 seconds, but the Huskies didn’t qualify for the finals.
Ruginski, the reigning indoor triple jump champion, competes in that event Saturday.
Sean Enos of Bates and Erin Silva and Katherine Harmon of Bowdoin also earned All-America honors with top-eight finishes.
Enos, a junior, became an All-American for the fourth time, placing fourth in the hammer with a career-best throw of 198-11. Silva, also a junior, broke her own school in the pole vault as she cleared 12-71/2 and finished fourth. Harmon, a senior from Auburn, was eighth in the women’s hammer with a personal-best throw of 175-11.
Both Silva and Harmon are now two-time All-Americans.
