Linn-Mar's Jenks wins 8th Drake Relays title

Posted: Updated:
DES MOINES (KWWL) -  Stephanie Jenks pulled off the distance triple, capping it with a title in the 1500 meters on Saturday at the Drake Relays. Jenks had already won the 800 and 3000 meter races to become just the second female athlete to win all 3 in the same season at the relays.

That's pretty exciting, I didn't know about that until my mom texted me this morning and said that she had read it somewhere," said the Linn-Mar junior.


Her title on Saturday marked the 8th in her career, tying Katie Flood and Shelby Houlihan for the most in Drake Relays history.
