Junior Jaivon Harrison is State Runner-Up in High Jump

Jaivon HarrisonJune 1, 2019—Congratulations to junior Jaivon Harrison, who cleared an amazing 6'10" on Saturday to become the state runner-up in the Boys High Jump at the OHSAA Track & Field Championships! The meet was held May 31-June 1 at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium on the campus of The Ohio State University. 

This was only Jaivon's second season competing in the high jump. Last year, he watched YouTube videos to learn more about high jumping, and this year, he received more formal coaching. "He's very raw, but he's a good jumper," says Head Coach Anthony Watkins. 

Jaivon placed second at the OATCCC Indoor Championships at SPIRE in February and says he knew then that he would make it to the State Championship. After his success, Jaivon has set his sights higher. "I want to be number one in the nation," he says. 
 
Way to go, Jaivon!
