Although she ran in a relay, Cooperstown’s Lucy Ford missed the high jump competition. According to Cooperstown coach Connie Herzig, Ford has an ankle injury that could keep her from jumping for several weeks. Ford also missed the CSC championships on Tuesday.
“She is possible but not probable for the Class C-1 meet on May 23,” Herzig said. “We are hoping she will jump on May 30, the State Qualifier. If not, her season is over. It stinks, but that is the way it goes sometimes.”
Ford’s best jump this season, 5-4, is better than the top score at the 2012 state C-D championships.
