Jenks sets 2 records in Iowa City

IOWA CITY - Linn-Mar junior Stephanie Jenks smashed two meet records at the Women of Troy Relays in Iowa City Tuesday.

Jenks blazed to victory in the 800 meter run in 2 minutes, 14.38 seconds, breaking the old mark of 2:17.69 set by Erin Penticoff of Xavier in 2003. She captured the 1500 in 4 minutes, 35.77 seconds, snapping her own meet record of 4:42.94 set as a freshman in 2013.

Jenks ran the fastest times in the state this year in both events. She also ranks No. 1 in the state in the 3000.

Iowa City West nipped Linn-Mar for the team championship, 146 to 145. Prairie placed third, Kennedy fifth and Xavier seventh.

Bokoyo wins sprints for J-Hawks

Merje' Bokoyo has arrived at Cedar Rapids Jefferson this year with speed.

Bokoyo, a transfer student from Galesburg, Ill., captured the 100 and 200 meter dashes at the John Ask Relays Saturday on a cool, sunny day at Kingston Stadium.

Bokoyo claimed the 100 meter dash in a hand-held time of 10.92 seconds, which Jefferson Coach Ron Tower said would translate to about a 11.15 electronic clocking.

"That's a good time. No question, this early, in the cold," said Tower.

Bokoyo helped Galesburg finished third in the 4x100 relay and sixth in the 4x200 relay at the Class 2A state meet in Illinois last year. Tower said Bokoyo is originally from the Congo in Africa.
