Federated Insurance Sacramento State Student-Athlete of the Week, Jan. 29-Feb. 4

Sophomore Jah Strange is this week’s Federation Insurance Sacramento State Student-Athlete of the Week after recording the best triple jump and setting the school record at the New Mexico Classic on Saturday, Feb. 3..

Strange set the record on his first attempt of the meet, jumping 51-03.50 to break Darius' Armstead's school record by three-quarters of an inch. The Indio, Calif., native's previous indoor best was 49-11.25 which came last season at the Big Sky Championships. Strange moved into second place in the Big Sky this season with his performance and is one of only two student-athletes to have jumped at least 50 feet this season. In fact, the pair are 23 inches beyond the next closest competitor in the league.

Last spring, Strange earned all-Big Sky honors after finishing third in the triple jump at the Big Sky Championships in Hornet Stadium. He went on to add All-American honors at the USATF Junior Championships where he finished in fifth place.
