UB’s Jones earn All-American

The University at Buffalo’s Jonathan Jones earned All-American honors late Wednesday night at the NCAA Track and Field Championships in Eugene, Ore.

Jones placed fourth in the shot put, the highest finish ever by a Bull in the annual meet. Jones earned the honor with a career-best throw of 63-feet-1½.

Shant’e White placed 19th out of 24 women in the hammer throw with a heave of 196-6 to cap a senior season in which she won the Mid-American Conference indoor title in the weight throw en route to earning second team All-America.
