It was a big day in Rochester on Friday night, as the reigning State Champion in the High Jump, both indoors and out, established a new benchmark in the event. Camryn Cole (Webster Schroeder) is well established in the event, having cleared 5-11 last spring already. That mark ties her NY #2 All-Time Outdoors.
Call it déjà vu, but Cole has once again cleared 5-11, and now finds herself tied at NY#2 All-Time Indoors as well. But there is more to this story.
Cole's Outdoor Mark tied her with Alison Smith (Clarence, '88). Indoors, Cole is tied with Monique Roberts (CNS, '08) for that Number 2 slot. She trails only Smith, who would clear 6-1 Indoors in 1987.
However, Smith had only managed to hit 5-11 her Senior year, with her best mark coming as a Junior. That means Cole now has tied Smith once again, this time for the Senior Class State Record in the High Jump.
It's a complicated web at the top end of the High Jump, with only minor incremental rises in the bar. If Cole were to clear the a bar at even 5-11.25, she would have the record outright.
It comes amidst a stellar year for Webster Schroeder, as teammate Corintia Griffith is also the State Leader in the Triple Jump, with a mark of 40-2 in the event. That mark too, is tied for #2 All-Time in Section 5.
