The mark is the best in North Carolina this year, tied for 8th best of anyone high school or younger in North Carolina History under all-conditions.  It would have placed Deen 3rd in the Championship section of New Balance Outdoor Nationals. 

Deen would also take the win in the 80m Hurdles clocking 12.54 (-1.1) in the Finals.  Deen ran 12.14 (+1.5) in the Prelims.  She holds a PR in the 80m Hurdles of 11.95 and is the national leader in that event as well as the Long Jump where she's exceeded the age group national record, previously at 17-11.75.

Deen's Long Jump also exceeds the 12 Year Old World Record which stands at 19-7 (+0.0) from Kumiko Ikeda (Japan, 1993).  Deen's mark wasn't measured with steel tape, so isn't official for record purposes.

Despite being only 12 Years Old, Deen becomes the 9th girl in state history to ever exceed 20 feet in the long jump under any conditions.  Kathy McMillan holds the National and State Record of 22-3 which could be in jeopardy as Deen gets into her high school career in a few years.
