Haught's school-record jump gets him to state

A school record long jump by Ricky Haught earned the Huntington North High School senior a chance to compete in the Indiana State Track Meet on Friday, May 31, in Bloomington.

Haught’s leap of 22-1.5 placed him fifth at the Marion Track Regional on Thursday, but the state meet competitors’ list is determined by the top three finishers at the regionals and the next best results to complete the field. Haught’s leap got him the last callback posi-tion for the jump.

Haught's jump beat by one inch the mark set in 2009 by Rob Sands.
