Shaq Thiessen soars past the Hillsboro High School record in long jump during the James Thomas Invitational Friday at Joel H. Wiens Stadium.

His leap of 23 feet 5 inches surpassed the mark of 23-21?2 set nearly 57 years ago by Jerry Harder at the 1956 state track meet. For more about the James Thomas Invitational, see Page 1B.
