College of the Canyons triple jumper Tim White won the silver medal on a tiebreaker at the Pan American Junior Track and Field Championships in Colombia.

Martinez is the reigning World Youth champion in the triple jump. He also recorded a jump of 54 feet, 1 ¼ inches. The gold medal was awarded to the athlete with the best second jump. Martinez’s second jump was 53 feet, 9 inches to White’s 53 feet, 5 ½ inches.

About Connie Jones

Connie and her husband, John, moved to the Santa Clarita Valley almost 30 years ago. Living in Santa Clarita for that long is the direct opposite of Connie’s childhood. She was an Army ‘brat’ who moved every two to three years. Consequently, she has lived in many states and even spent three years in Europe. All three of her kids went to Santa Clarita schools. Connie says the best thing about her job at KHTS is that she is never bored. “If I’m not smiling, Carl is sure to ask why, just before giving me a mind-boggling project.” “KHTS AM-1220 is an integral part of our community and I’m glad to be a part of it. Besides, the DJs will take my request to play Shania Twain’s ‘Still the One’ for my wedding anniversary – gotta love that!”
