Geubelle, who won the triple jump on Thursday, finished her stay at the championships with a mark of 6.37 meters (20 feet, 10.75 inches).

Geubelle, who likely competed in a Kansas uniform for the final time, was the first Jayhawk to earn individual championships at three different levels — Big 12, NCAA and American — since KU shot-putter Karl Salb in 1973.

Kansas senior Paris Daniels qualified for today’s semifinals of the 200 meters with a wind-aided time of 22.59 seconds. The mark was the third-fastest in school history.

KU junior thrower Jessica Maroszek will also take the field to compete in discus today, the final day of the championships.
