High Jump Title – Eve Cavazos

Eve Cavazos ’27 Ties School Record,
Wins Tapps 5A State Title in High Jump

 

Conditions at the TAPPS State Championship Track and Field meet weren’t perfect for a championship-level meet, but that didn’t hinder Eve Cavazos ‘27 in her ability to tie the school record that she set earlier in the year and secure the TAPPS 5A State Title in the Girl’s High Jump on Friday, May 3.

  

Cavazos was just one of two freshmen in the field of the top eight high jumpers in the state, pitting the four best from the south region against the four best in the north.   Entering the competition at the height of 4’8,” she missed at her first attempt but refocused and cleared it on her second attempt.  Knowing that would put her behind those who cleared it in their first attempt, she needed to secure first attempts in at least the next two heights. Moving on, she cleared 4’10’, 5’0”, and 5’2” all on their first attempt.   This pushed her into first place due to her only having one miss!   This is the first ever high jump TAPPS State Champion for SMH. Congratulations, Eve!
