University of Wyoming senior Jerayah Davis wrapped up a busy Thursday at the NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships in Austin, Texas, by finishing 23rd in the long jump.

Davis, a Kelly Walsh graduate, jumped 19 feet, 6.25 inches to earn honorable mention All-America honors for the third time on the day. Earlier Thursday, Davis finished 20th in the 100-meter dash and was on the Cowgirls' 4x100 relay team that placed 23rd.

Davis set the school record in the long jump earlier this year with a mark of 21-02.5. Florida's Yanis David won the event with a jump of 22-05.25.

Wyoming senior Ja'la Henderson, who ran in the 4x100 with Davis, Jordan Edmonds and Shayla Howell, competes in the triple jump Saturday.
