Personal best

Fargo Forum

Jessica Garrett is going home happy. In her second season on the track team and the first competing in the high jump, the Pelican Rapids senior finished fourth in the event at 5-5. The 5-foot-10 basketball standout didn’t miss an attempt until being eliminated at 5-6. Prior to last week’s section meet, she hadn’t cleared higher than 5-2. Right behind her in fifth place, also at 5-5, was senior teammate Melissa Seifert, who improved on an eighth place showing last spring. It took a Class 1A meet-record
jump of 5-9 by Caledonia/ Spring Grove/Mabel-Canton senior Brianna Polus to best the likes of the two Vikings and Lake Park-Audubon’s Toni Tollefson, who came in eighth at 5-2.
“I just had the confidence,” Garrett said. “It kept me going.”
