UW Eau Claire - Triple Jump

So I just recently found out I have a relative that is currently a Senior at UW-Eau Claire and is on the Mens Track & Field team as a Triple Jumper. Eric Eigenfeld, who went to High School in DeForest has improved in his 4 years at UWEC to become the teams top Triple Jumper. Next on his radar.......CARL LEWIS!!!!!

In 2004 he was 2nd and 3rd in Indoor and Outdoor on his team with jumps of 44'-1 1/2" for Indoor and 43'-10 1/2" for Outdoor. In 2005 he did some Long Jumping landing in the top 5 on the team at 19'-10 1/4" for Indoor. He also posted a career best 44'-6" in the Triple Jump in Outdoor competition. In 2006 he took over the top spot on the team in the Triple Jump in both Indoor and Outdoor with great jumps of 44'-3/4" and 43-11 1/4". (stats from UWEC athletics page)

Best of luck to Eric this year as UWEC's top Triple Jumper.
