Griffin and Austin both competed in the high jump. Griffin went out after a 4’10” jump and Austin followed close behind after clearing 5’0″. Austin also competed in the long jump, where she finished in 13th place with a best jump of 16′ 0.25″. She added another feather to her cap with a 14th place 28.24 second 200 meter dash preliminary run.
