Smallwood has ‘best day ever’
Phoenix Smallwood had what coach Pat Hodge called the best day ever for any PHS jumper in Saturday’s Illinois Prep Top Times Indoor Championships at Illinois Wesleyan University in Bloomington.
The PHS senior medaled twice with a pair of school records. She placed second in the triple jump with a jump of 36 feet, 4 inches, eclipsing the school record of 35-10 1/2 set by Sarah Maynard in 2009. Smallwood also placed third in the long jump at 17-6 3/4, tying the school record set by Nicole Coates in 1989.
“It was the best day so far in Phoenix’s career with two personal bests,” Hodge said. “She was pretty consistent throughout the whole competition. Her best jump in both events happened on her fifth attempt. She looked like she had a little more pop in her jumps and was able to hit the board regularly.”
