COLLEGE STATION, Texas – Julian Harvey placed fifth and earned All-American honors Friday at the NCAA Division I Indoor Track and Field Championships in the long jump with a mark of 25 feet, 7.5 inches (7.81m).

Harvey has one more event at the meet. He will compete in Saturday's high jump event at 3:30 p.m.

"He has worked incredibly hard the past four years to be able to make this happen," said SIUE jumps coach Joey Pacione. "He stayed engaged the whole competition and competed well. It wasn't the result we came in hoping for, but he should still hold his head high."

Harvey took fifth with his fifth jump of the competition. KeAndres Bates, of Florida, was the winner at 26-4.5.
