St Michael Albertville's Anna Keefer Works Overtime

As the athletes in the third "flight" of the Class AA long jump  were getting ready to go, Anna Keefer laid down in the grass, her hands folded over her eyes.   "I'm tired,"she said.  She had already run in the 100 Prelims, anchored the 4 by 200 relay, and led off the 4 by 100 relay.

Her right  leg had a strip of black and white KT tape to help with some of the physical stress. She opened with a leap of 18'10.5" and her second jump of 18'6.25" each were better than runner-up Shea Buchman of Rosemount, who also led with her best of six jumps, 18'5".

Keefer's day was not done, however, as she ran and won the prelims of the 200.  No rest for the multi-talented.
