Jump Around

Erik Long Jump 2015

Now that Kyle’s lacrosse season is over, I can get reacquainted with my other little monsters. Erik, in particular, has been the most neglected because I have been unable to see his track meets and lacrosse games. That changes tonight, when Erik will compete in a high jump competition.

For the past few years, Erik had run the 100m sprint, the 4×100 relay, and performed the long jump. His best jump this season was 11’10”, crushing his previous best of 10’10”. This year, his coach asked for volunteers to compete in the high jump. Ever the gamer, Erik volunteered.

His first-ever jump was three feet, which is an okay height. Last week, he jumped four feet, which was enough for the coach to enter him into tonight’s competition. The coach believes if he jumps four feet or more, he will move on to the divisional championships. I’m confident he will perform admirably.

UPDATE:

Erik High Jump

Erik cleared 3’8″ tonight, cementing an appearance in the CYO Divisional Track Championships!

  1. Congrats to Erik. One of my brothers used to compete in the pole vault and actually holds the school record. That puppy has stood for quite a while.
