LB Poly TrackRabbit Invitational

Long Beach, CA


Catching Up With State HJ Champ Rachel Glenn Feb 27, 2019

MileSplitCA caught up with Long Beach Wilson junior Rachel Glenn at the Long Beach Poly TrackRabbit Invitational on Saturday (2/23). Glenn, who started high jumping last season, tied for the title at the CIF-State Championships in June. She's also an excellent 400-meter runner, who put down a 54-second 40-meter anchor leg to rally Wilson past Moore League rival Poly in the 800m Sprint Medley Relay at this meet. Glenn opened her high jump career last spring with a stunning 5-11. That mark is the No. 1 returning jump in CA, tied for No. 4 nationally among returners, and ranks No. 2 nationally among girls in the Class of 2020. At the State Meet last June, Glenn tied two-time champion Abigail Burke at 5-10. A jump-off to determine a champion was not held and the two girls, the veteran Burke, and the newcomer, Glenn, shared the title.
