Kelly O'Connor

Esperanza, Junior

Track and Field/Triple Jump

O'Connor's triple jump of 39 feet 7 1/2 in the Aztecs' first league meet of the season stood as the county's best mark until the State meet. O'Connor jumped 39-10 1/4 Friday in the preliminary round, then Saturday became the first county female to break the 40-foot barrier. O'Connor fouled on her first jump, then jumped 40-5 3/4, more than half a foot better than the record set by Mission Viejo's Lisa Fager in 1989. O'Connor's next jump was 40-6 1/2, more than a foot better than Darnesha Griffith of Trabuco Hills.
