College Track and Field: Huber finishes 3rd, earns All-American honors
PITTSBURG, Kan.—Minnesota State University Moorhead senior Brian Huber set a school record and finished third in the long jump to pick up All-American honors during the NCAA Division II national meet Friday.
It is the fourth All-American honor of Huber's Dragon career.
Huber advanced to the finals with a jump of 24-9.75 which at that point was a season best. His final jump in the finals of 25-2.75 was initially ruled a foul. However, MSUM assistant coach Trevor Barry appealed and asked for a video review, the foul was overturned and the jump was ruled good, giving Huber a school record and third-place finish.
Huber had the previous MSUM indoor long jump record of 24-11. The Staples native is a four-time long jump national indoor qualifier. The third-place finish marks his best finish ever at a national meet—his previous best was fifth. He now turns his focus to the outdoor season, which will be his final as a Dragon.
