Akela Jones wins Big 12 high jump and 60m hurdles -- back to back


Behind Akela Jones and her NCAA-leading 1.93m jump, K-State went 1-2-3-T7 in the high jump, racking up 24.42 points to leap into first place. Kim Williamson was second, Rhizlane Siba third, and Rachel Proteau was part of a seven-way tie for seventh.

But that's not all. Jones immediately followed up her high jump title by winning the 60m hurdles. K-State actually lost five points to Texas in the event, as the Longhorns went 3-4-5, but the Wildcats still lead Texas by 13.42 points after nine events.

The men, meanwhile, are in second place following the men's 60m hurdles, trailing Texas by only 4.5 points.
