Jones wins javelin

Columbia Falls native and University of Montana senior Daniel Jones uncorked the longest throw of his career in the best possible moment, winning the Big Sky Conference javelin championship on Saturday on the campus of Sacramento State University.

Jones took first with a distance of 65.74 meters (215 feet, 8 inches) on his second attempt at the Big Sky outdoor track championships, winning the event by more than 13 feet.

Jones also holds the Columbia Falls school record in the javelin, at 202 feet, 6 inches, set in 2012.
