Ford jumps to state title for CCS track

Personal best, school record good for top Division II height

(Continued)

Crunden was lone member of that quartet to clear 5-6. Ford finished fourth overall, losing to Perry and Mjelmer on misses. Herzig said Ford had one good attempt at 5-6 but that her legs had lost some of their spring by that time in the competition.

“The injury was definitely a big step back because I didn’t know if I’d come back,” Ford said. “The mental part was the toughest part. Getting over that was rough.”

Heading into her senior year, Ford said 5-8 will be her goal.

“I don’t put a ceiling on her,” Herzig said. “She’s the best high jumper I’ve ever worked with, that’s for sure. I hope she continues to refine her technique. If she continues to develop, goodness, I don’t know (how high she could jump).”
