Chi Chi Aduba, Sr., Penn State
Medfield, Mass./Medfield High School
Senior three-time All-American Chi Chi Aduba capped off a huge weekend at the Jesse Owens Track Classic winning the long (21-6; 6.55) and triple jump (43-2 ½; 13.16). Aduba's mark in the long jump would have been the top mark in the nation going into the weekend and was a new Penn State record. Aduba now owns the best marks in the Big Ten in the 2004 season in both the long and triple jumps. Both jumps were also NCAA regional qualifying efforts. Aduba also took sixth in the 100 meters with a time of 11.81.
