Record-Breaking Jump Earns Student-Athlete Of The Week Honor For Ogunmodede
GOLDEN – Following the sixth-highest jump
in all of Division II over the weekend, junior Seun
Ogunmodede of the Mines men’s indoor track
& field team has been named this week’s Mines
Student-Athlete of the Week, athletic department officials
A Castle Rock native and Mechanical Engineering major, Ogunmodede set a new program record in the high jump at the Potts Indoor Invitational on Friday with a jump of 6-11, which eclipsed the previous school record of 6-10 set by George Buck in 1985 and later matched by Jay Wordew.
Ogunmodede later attempted and nearly cleared 7-1, but the crossbar fell off after wobbling on the stanchions for a few seconds.
Ogunmodede tied with Mark Jones of Colorado for first in the event out of nine participants, and the jump is currently the sixth-highest mark in Division II, as well as tops in the RMAC this season.
The two-sport athlete (men’s soccer) now holds three of the top six jumps in program history.
He added to his record-breaking weekend with a second-place finish in the triple jump on Saturday with a leap of 45-3.75.
