In this edition of the MileSplit Minute, we focus on returning CIF-State triple jump champion Alyssa Hope of Riverside King (SS) whose junior season also included a runner-up finish at State in the long jump.
What are the prospects of her sweeping at State this May?
Historically, since the triple was added to the State Meet in 1982, there have been six girls who have swept the horizontal jumps in nine of the 39 State Meets.
But the returning competition in both jumps is stellar, including returning State long jump champion Sydnie Vanek of Clovis (CS). So no easy road for Alyssa to sweep, but it should be an absolute treat watching the girls horizontal jump competition play out over the course of the 2023 outdoor season.
