Carsyn Spurgeon set a program record in the long jump Saturday as the University of Tulsa opened the indoor track and field season at the Crimson & Gold Invitational at Pittsburg (Kansas) State.
Spurgeon, a junior from Vinita, shattered the program's indoor record with a leap of 19 feet, 11.5 inches (6.08 meters) to win the event. The jump bested the previous program mark by 5.5 feet. Spurgeon's mark currently ranks sixth in NCAA Division I.
