East Jackson Comprehensive High School’s lone participant in the girls’ state track meet in Albany recorded a tenth-place finish and set a new
personal best height.
Jessie Harper cleared 4’10” in the high jump, her best jump on record. It was good enough for a tenth-place finish in in an event won by Westminster.
Coach Steve Collins said the trip was a “good first experience” for Harper, who had placed second in the high jump in the region finals at East Jackson earlier in the month to qualify for state.
