COLUMBUS, Ohio-Augustana senior Patrick Zeunik (Bloomington Central Catholic HS, Bloomington, Ill.) broke his own school record Saturday, going 49' 5" in the triple jump to finish second at the NCAA Division III Men's Indoor Championships.
Zeunik's leap, which came on his second attempt, bettered his own school record, set on February 2 in Whitewater, Wisconsin by ½". He finished 3½" off the winning mark of 49' 8½" put up by Chrys Jones of Centre College. Isaac Vasquez of Wisconsin-LaCrosse finished third with a leap of 48' 9".
The second-place finish earned Zeunik All-America honors for the third time. He finished seventh at last year's indoor nationals with a mark of 47' 5" and matched that seventh-place finish at the 2010 national outdoor meet with a leap of 48' 1¼".
