For one of the few times this season, defending state long jumper Maddie Nossek had to settle for second place in the event.

The slide occurred April 19 at the Payson Rotary-sponsored freshmen and sophomore invitational held on the newly refurbished PHS track.

There, Nossek had to settle for the silver medal in the long jump with a leap of 16 feet, 3.25 inches. The winning jump was 16 feet, 5 inches.

Nossek, however, added to her long list of gold-medal victories by winning the high jump at 4 feet, 10 inches.
