MISSOULA — Missoula Sentinel's Lauren Heggen and Helena's Trey Tintinger, both sophomores, competed at the Stanford Track and Field Invitational this weekend. 

Tintinger, last year's Class AA high jump champion, cleared the 6-foot-9¾ mark in the boys' high jump to place second at the Stanford meet as the only sophomore in the field. His leap of 7 feet, 1½ inches at the state meet last year brought down Mark Koefelda's 24-year-old all-class record. 

Heggen competed in two events — the triple jump and the 100-meter hurdles.

Heggen's triple jump leap of 39 feet, 0½ inches placed sixth at the Stanford meet and is less than 2 inches off of her personal best, set in July at the USATF National Junior Olympic Championships.

Heggen placed 20th in the 100-meter hurdles, finishing in a personal-best time of 15.79 seconds.

All three marks by the two sophomores at the Stanford meet lead the state of Montana in their respective events.
