STATE CHAMPION - JACKIE SIEFRING...
Jackie Siefring became the first female athlete in school history to win a state track title by winning the long jump on her final attempt.

JUNE 6, 2014 - COLUMBUS
Jackie Siefring became the first female Covington athlete to ever win a state championship in track on Friday, winning the long jump with a leap of 18 feet and 3/4 of an inch - a distance that came on her final jump.

It was an accomplishment that even shocked Siefring, as she felt she would likely have to wait until Saturday to make history in the hurdles.

"I never expected to win state in the long jump, not at all," said Siefring as she was swarmed by media after leaving the medal stand. "Actually, I never came into this weekend with many expectations other than doing my best. That way I knew I'd never come away disappointed. It took a lot of the pressure off."

Siefring has suffered through more than her fair share of disappointment over the past year as she was disqualified in the 100 meter hurdles at regional as a junior and then suffered a horrendous knee injury two weeks later in summer basketball - an injury that required complete reconstruction of her ACL.

Through intense training and rehabilitation, Siefring, who had to sit out her senior season of basketball, returned to the track even stronger than a year ago. She won an indoor state title in March in the long jump and placed 5th in the 60 meter hurdles, seventh in the 60 meter dash and eighth in the 400 meter dash - all in her first time testing out her knee in real competition.

Then, throughout the regular track season Siefring dominated in every event she competed in, primarily focusing on the 100 and 300 meter hurdles - two events she felt gave her the best chance to make history in becoming the school's first female state champion in track.

On Friday, she kept her dream of winning those two events alive by advancing to Saturday finals with a time of 14.66 in the 100 meter hurdles and a time of 44.55 in the 300 meter hurdles - winning her heat in both events.

She enters Saturday's finals with the second fastest times in both events behind Morgan Rice of Warren JFK High School, last year's state champion in the 100 meter hurdles.

"I don't worry about times in the prelims, just advancing to the finals," Siefring said. "All of the girls here are great competitors, so to even be in the finals tomorrow is great. I'll do my best."

Siefring saved her best for last in the long jump as she was sitting in fourth place heading into the final jump with a distance of 16 feet, 11 and 1/2 inches. In all of her previous jumps she was no where near fouling as her foot never touched the white board.

On her last jump, however, Siefring went for it - used all of the white board and launching herself into the record books with a school-record jump that resulted into a state championship medal going around her neck.

"As I was getting ready for may last jump I said, God just let me enjoy my performance today," she said as she stared at her state championship medal. "He came through."

And as the officials were measuring the distance, witnesses behind the fence knew she nailed the jump.

"No red flag, nobody is beating that one," said an onlooker before the official distance was announced.

Seeing a white flag was Siefring's only concern after the jump. She didn't want to see a red one.

"White Flag, White Flag, White Flag," Siefring said in hopes she hadn't fouled.

And as the official announced "eighteen feet and three quarters of an inch", the entire collection of Covington supporters who were on hand cheered in unison.

Because they knew they just witnessed Covington history.

Jackie Siefring also qualified for the finals in the 100 and 300 meter hurdles.
