BYDGOSZCZ, POLAND (KAUZ) - Former Hirschi Huskies track and field standout Charles Brown has qualified for the finals in the triple jump at the IAAF World U20 Track and Field championships in Poland.

He recorded a top jump of 52 feet, 4.75 inches in his third and final qualifying attempt Wednesday, and will compete in the finals on Thursday. That final will consist of another preliminary round, with three attempts that will trim the field from 12 to 6 competitors, then the final 6 will each get one jump for the gold.

Earlier this year, Brown won the U.S. Juniors championship with a distance of 53-7.75.
