Jacobus helps Cougars soar at Kingston

Derek Jacobus woke up Saturday morning and felt he was ready for a really good day at the Draxton/Stiers/Wilkinson Invitational coed track meet at Kingston Stadium.

He had no idea how good.

Jacobus soared 23 feet, 1 1/2 inch in the long jump to break the Kennedy record and move into the No.1 spot in the state rankings. He won the long jump at the Class 4A state meet last year at 22 feet, 10 1/4 inches, so he's already ahead of his junior campaign despite an assortment of ailments.

Jacobus has battled a kidney illness for much of the school year, requiring a regular dose of medications that had his face all puffy with retained water, and he tweaked a hamstring muscle earlier this month that led to him skipping a meet.
