Garden City Community Colleges Laquisha Coleman and Donesha Ruffin have both qualified for the NJCAA Indoor Track and Field National Championships. The National Championships will be held on March, 4th-5th in Winston-Salem, NC. Below is a recap of CSM Joe Davies Invitational held last Friday and Saturday in Golden, CO:
- Laquisha Coleman
- Had a great day in long jump qualifying with the second best jump in the nation of 18'7. She got 3rd place overall in the meet getting edged out by 2 great performers including the top jumper in Division II. She is so young and just starting to learn how to jump. She has a bright future and can do some great things this year.
- Donesha Ruffin
- Donesha had a good week of competition punching her ticket to nationals in the triple jump with a jump of 35'5. Donesha has a lot left and is starting to get stronger as the weeks go.
