SPEARFISH, S.D. – Brenna Beckett broke two school records and won both long jump and triple jump events to pace Montana State University Billings in men’s and women’s track and field Saturday afternoon at the Dave Little Alumni Mile in Spearfish, South Dakota.
"Brenna has been jumping extremely well this season for us and it really came together for her today,” said MSUB head track and field coach Jon Woehl. “I expect her to continue to jump well and get further and further through the spring. Overall, we had a good day as a team. Several athletes marked personal records which was very encouraging.

”Beckett took down Delaware Steingruber’s 2012 long jump record after landing 17’ 5.5” (5.32 meters) in Spearfish, ahead of nine other competitors. Then in triple jump, the senior bested Janessa Williams’ 2017 record when she marked 36’ 5.75” (11.21 meters). Katie Campbell of Black Hills State came in second at 34’ 7.75” (10.56 meters).
