    After competing the entire season for the varsity track team as a sophomore, Tyler found himself competing once more for the varsity team as one of the team's top two high jumpers over the course of the year. With so many different schools competing at one meet, the opening height for today's competition was set higher than the usual height that Tyler had become accustomed to. While Tyler has cleared over 5'-6" during practice, that happened to be his personal record in a competition. It also happened to be the opening height for this meet. While Tyler gave it his best shot, he wasn't able to clear it. While some members of the team moved on to the state meet, the entire team was only 0.5 points away from qualifying... disappointing to be sure, but Tyler really had a great first year as a high jumper. Good job Tyler!

...and knocking the bar down.

...and jumping high once again...

...but coming down too soon...

...and knocking off the bar once more.
