HIGH JUMP 2000
Ewing jumps to title
Alisha Ewing pegged her last
jump like she had her first.
There was only one difference.
This time it was for a state championship.
The official result was 5-8 1/4
a new Rochester High School high jump record
and good enough to win the Indiana
state championship. Alisha was the second individual
to ever bring home a state title in the schools history. She is the first
lady from Rochester High School to win a state title.
Living near Rochester high school
I was a constant observer of the track and
field training activities. The
athlete's and their coaches worked hard and at different
times of the day and evening. Coach Brad Smith would even work on the
week-end if an athlete needed and wanted extra instruction. Due to the
hard work and conditioning their program was
a huge success.
Alisha, on Thursday evening I wished
you the very best while you were practicing and
I was walking on the track. I sure hope that it had something in your winning
I wish you the very best in the
years ahead and God Bless.
