Lewis University junior Isaac Jean-Paul (Gurnee, Ill./Warren) broke his own school-record and won the high jump with a NCAA Provisional mark of 6'8 3/4" (2.05m) to lead the Flyer men's track and field team at the Beach Invitational, hosted by Long Beach State, at Cerritos College on Saturday (Apr. 19).

Jean-Paul set one of three NCAA Provisional marks for the Flyers, joining juniors Matt Jemilo (Tinley Park, Ill./Tinley Park) and Kevin Dorenkamper (Minooka, Ill./Minooka), both of whom notched personal-records.

Jemilo achieved both feats in the 800-meter run (1:52.14), while classmate Kevin Dorenkamper (Minooka, Ill./Minooka) did it in the 400-meter hurdles (53.39).
