Houston, we have liftoff.

Trey Houston that is. The Gophers redshirt senior claimed Big Ten championship in the triple jump and also soared to a new Minnesota record.  

He broke a mark that lasted 24 years. 

Houston has come a long way as a redshirt senior both in technique and self-confidence.

They're onto the NCAA Indoor Championships, where Houston hopes to take another huge leap forward in his career.
