EUGENE, Ore.– Kalulusno Ngaida certainly has carried her momentum from years past into her Senior year as the Cascade jumper brought home the 4A High Jump Title with a five-foot-six-inch jump after sealing the title a few minutes before.

“Definitely a long time coming, I placed second last year, I placed second my freshman year in High Jump so I felt like this is the moment I’ve been waiting for,” said Ngaida. “I’m definitely more confident, I feel like a Senior so I’m hoping I don’t have the likeness of choking up so I think that’s sort of the advantage I’ve had.  I’m excited to see how everyone else does next year too,”

The Senior then turned her focus to the Long Jump, and yes fatigue played a factor in her jumps, Ngaida pulled off a fifth-place finish with a 16-foot-8.5-inch jump as she looks to finish off the season strong with the Triple Jump.

“I wish I had a better day in Long Jump because I unfortunately didn’t reach my PR in that but I don’t know, it was tough I was tired,” said Ngaida.  “I’m excited for Triple tomorrow, I’m ranked one so hopefully I keep that.”

Kaeyln Worst finished ninth in the Javelin, Lucy Roache was 13th in the 300 meter Hurdles with a 51.50 time for the freshman.  Faith Craig advances to the Second Day finals with a 16.32 time, good enough for fourth in the 100 meter hurdles.
