This week we turn our focus to the horizontal jumps. Looking back to the 2019 state meet, you can see that a large number of the top athletes are returning. In fact, three of the four state champions will be back for 2020, and in the girls' jumps a whopping 8 of the 12 state meet finalists return.
How does this year's crop of returning jumpers compare to those from recent years? We've got data from the 2017 and 2018 state meets to compare with 2019 to see if this is an exceptional group of athletes.
