Jared Lewis, a Hospitality & Tourism Management major at Stockton University, earned his fourth and fifth All-American titles in only two years of collegiate competition at the 2016 NCAA Division III Outdoor Track & Field Championships. He is one title away from the university record.
Lewis finished eighth in the nation in the long jump with a leap of 7.02 meters, and placed second in the nation with a new personal best of 15.42 meters in the triple jump. In track & field, the All-American honor is awarded to athletes who finish in the top eight at the national championship meet, held this year at Wartburg College’s (Iowa) Walston-Hoover Stadium.
Lewis chose to attend Stockton because the university offered the opportunity to pursue goals both inside the classroom and on the track at the Division III level.
“Stockton felt like the best fit for me to study hospitality and still jump competitively,” he said.
