LANCASTER — Brandon Adkins jumped well and now he can jump for joy.

The Coal Grove Hornets’ sophomore was second in the Division III regional track meet high jump event and earned a berth in the state track meet next Friday and Saturday at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium in Columbus.

Adkins leaped 6-foot, 5-inches to finish second in the high jump behind Aakaash Paladugu of Columbus Academy who also went 6-5 but won on fewer misses.

The 6-5 jumps were the second best heights among all four regional meets held Friday and Saturday.

The state high jump will be held at 1 p.m. on Friday.

The Hornets’ Jonathon Joseph was eighth in the 1600-meter run with a 4:43.20 time.

Coal Grove’s 4×100 relay team of Alex Bare, Bryan Steele, Mason Nance and Austin Ruggles was seventh with a 44.87 time.

Austen Pleasants was seventh with a toss of 133-feet.

The Lady Hornets’ 4×200 relay team of Ashley Adkins, Jacy Jones, Leslie Mulkey and Bailey Harrison was sixth at 1:51.58.
