SHIPPENSBURG — In just one jump, Lanae Newsome surpassed her 40-foot goal, broke the state record and won her second PIAA Class AA triple jump championship.

Newsome and king seed Paige Lumley, of Richland, battled out the competition throughout the day. The state record was broken four times during last Saturday's competition.

The previous state record (39-5.75) was held by Rhonda Witmer, of Greenwood.
