Riley Ammenhauser (Sr., Neuqua Valley HS; Naperville IL)
Event: Triple Jump, Long Jump
Overview: Before the fans get settled in for the Roisin Willis festivities, Ammenhauser will attempt to make the national highlight reel with her jumping prowess. The nation's top returning triple jumper is sitting at the US#2 spot with a 40'5.5" effort which is less than three inches short of national leader Stephanie Robson of Virginia. Ammenhauser got a late start but has improved each time out and she appears better than her indoor personal best 41'3.75".
In Ammenhauser's secondary event, the long jump, look for the future University of Michigan star to improve on her US#19 19'0." We are calling for 19'7" which would put her into the top 10 and keep the smiles abound.
