Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - The North Dakota State track meet is this weekend in Bismarck.

And West Fargo's Jamie Heinen is definitely one to watch. Heinen won the long and triple jump last year. This year, he's qualified in four events and is a big favorite to repeat in the horizontal jumps after uncorking two of the best leaps in state history at last week's East Region meet: 47 feet 2 inches in the triple jump and 24-3 in the long jump.

Jamie Heinen, Reigning State Long Jump and Triple Jump Champion: “Those are huge P-R's by a foot and 2 and a half feet. I'm really excited for state and I'm hoping to jump further I think repeating in the horizontal jumps is realistic I'm shooting for three or four. Can’t complain even P-R'ing.”
