Marquise Goodwin Captures Second NCAA Long Lump Title

Updated: Wednesday, June 6 2012, 11:17 PM CDT
Junior Marquise Goodwin won his second career national championship in the long jump to help Texas gain first place on the first day of the NCAA Championships in Des Moines, Iowa at Drake Stadium.

“It feels great,” said Goodwin. “I have a great supporting cast out here.  It was a great day to compete out here.  There were a lot of great competitors out here jumping that beat me before, but I just felt it today and went out there and got it done.”

Goodwin posted the top four jumps of the day, ending with a personal best 8.23m (27-0) on his final attempt. He had four jumps over 8.10m, including his first jump of 8.19m (26-10.75) that put him in first place for the duration.

“It was a good series,” said Goodwin. “During warm-ups I felt good, but during the 4x100 (relay) we had a little mishap and it kind of pushed me a little bit. It kind of gave me an extra edge today. It’s just one of those things that happens, but I tried to build off of it. I tried to put it behind me as fast as I could with limited time. I came out here and did what I needed to do today to get 10 points for the team.” 

The national championship for Goodwin is his second career title as he won the 2010 Outdoor NCAA Championship with a jump of 8.15m (26-9). He is the eighth athlete in school history to win multiple titles in a career and the second to do it in the long jump along with Eric Metcalf (1986 and 1988).

Goodwin’s championship performance along with two other athletes garnering All-America honors helped Texas take the overall lead after the first day. The Longhorns scored 17 points and are up four on second place Nebraska. Marquise Goodwin Captures Second NCAA Long Lump Title
