Mountain Pointe 2013 graduate Travonn White fell short of his goal, but still performed well in the long jump at the IAAF World Junior Championships in Oregon over the weekend.

White, who will be a sophomore at Central Arizona this fall, came into the event as the second seed with the second-best long jump in the world for competitors under the age of 20 after jumping 26 feet, 4.5 inches in the U.S. Championships over the July 4 weekend.

He ended up fourth in the World Juniors after jumping 25-3 to just miss out on medaling.
