We're coming off a banner year for the indoor high jump for girls nationally.
A total of four athletes cleared 6-feet in the event, an increase of 400-percent from the previous year. That's scary good. Since 2010, a total of eight girls have eclipsed that height. A total of 17 athletes had achieved that feat before 2019 all-time.
Check out the list of athletes who have accomplished that height since 2010:
|Vashti Cunningham||Bishop Gorman (NV)||6-6.25||2016|
|Morgan Smalls||Panther Creek (NC)||6-3.25||2019|
|Jelena Rowe||Bloom Township (IL)||6-1||2017|
|Nicole Green||Ponte Vedra (FL)||6-0.5||2015|
|Hannah Williams||Dike-New Hartford (IA)||6-0.25||2010|
|Taylor Wright||Northwest (MD)||6-0||2019|
|Shelby Tyler||Noblesville (IN)||6-0||2019|
|Nyagoa Bayak||Westbrook (ME)||6-0||2019|

Some, like Morgan Smalls, have already made major improvements. Check out the full list below.
