Big Walnut’s Issac Lucas cleared 21 feet, 3 inches in the long jump to qualify for the upcoming Boys Indoor State Meet at Saturday’s Central District competition at Otterbein University. Cole Stark earned automatic State qualifier status with a 40-9 performance in the triple jump. Lucas is also an automatic qualifier in the high jump with an 6-4 effort earlier this season at Ohio State.
Golden Eagle teammate Joe Mensch jumped 39-7 in the triple jump which put him on the bubble as the top 16 performances in the State are automatic qualifiers. The next nine are provisional and only goon to the State if someone in the top 16 doesn’t declare to go by deadline.
Cole and Joe have jumped 6 feet in the high jump which has them sitting 24th right now and on the bubble as well.
“The guys had a great Central District Indoor meet with each one having at least one individual career best effort,” BW jumps coach Mike Ryder said. I cant ask for anything more, and at least three out six going to states … its been amazing!!!”
