Yesterday afternoon, Jyles Etienne repeated as the Division III high jump champion. His 6′ 6″ leap was the second-highest mark of the day behind Daniel Claxton’s (Smithtown East) 7′ 0″ jump in the Division II final. Etienne chose not to attempt a jump after his winning height due to an uncomfortable feeling in his heel. A season ago Etienne soared above 6′ 10″ to claim the title.

Etienne now has his sites set on defending his Suffolk County Championship at Port Jeff one week from Saturday.
