“I am working on gaining another triple jump for this competition to make my score even higher and myself stronger than the rest of my competitors, so I can move on to Nationals, which would be the final step in the series of competitions,” said Eckels. “I have to place top four at Sectionals if I will move onto Nationals.”

The Championships will take place on Nov. 13, 2018.
