On the record ... with Jasmine Brown
DeKALB – Last month, Jasmine Brown became the first DeKalb High School female athlete to win an individual title in the girls’ state track meet when she captured the Class 3A triple jump (39-11.75).
“My goal was to jump 40 feet,” the DHS senior, who also took third in the long jump, said with a laugh. “I got as close as you can get without hitting it.”
Brown, who grew up in Rock Island, moved to DeKalb at the start of her eighth grade year in 2008. At the advice of her middle school track coach, Brown began the triple jump, which is now her favorite event. She also ran in sprint relays.
