ELLENSBURG, Wash. - Competing for what may have been the last performance of her college career, Sarajane Rosenberg, a senior at Western Oregon University who graduated from Pendleton in 2004 and still holds records in the triple and long jump, was second in the long jump with a 17 feet, 6 inches jump and second in the triple jump with a leap of 36 feet in the Great Northwest Athletic Conference Track and Field Campionships last weekend.
Rosenberg also ran the anchor leg of the 4x100 relay for the second time this season and they placed second.
Both the Western Oregon women's and the men's team were GNAC team champions.
After recovering from a stress fracture in her back as a freshman at University of Idaho, Rosenberg has returned to compete as a part-time athlete for the Western track team. While placing well at the indoor conference championships, she had not competed in any other indoor meet and got in on a wild card. This outdoor season, due to her education schedule, she was only able to go to track practice twice a week and jumped 37-2 in triple jump at a meet at Mount Hood Community College the week before the GNAC.
Rosenberg has one more year of eligibility at Western, but may elect to focus on her budding teaching career.
