Swan Valley Elementary School eighth-grader Rose Mercer flies through the air as she prepares to land her triple jump.

RONAN – Swan Valley Warhawk Rose Mercer broke the Swan Valley Elementary School triple jump record March 31 at the first meet of the season in Ronan, Mont. She jumped 28 feet, 10.75 inches beating the record set by Trinity Hamilton in the early 1990s by nearly two inches.

Mercer had tried triple jump a couple times last year for the first time and she said she was not very good. With the help of assistant coach Dana Conley, she earned the fourth place spot and competed at the Meet of Champions last year.

"I decided to try it again this year," said Mercer who is now an eighth-grader.
