Sweet Home sophomore Brenton Baker added All-American to his list of accomplishments in his first season as a high jumper.
Baker placed fifth in the boys high jump Saturday at the Adidas High School Indoor Track and Field Nationals in Virginia Beach, Va.
He cleared 6-foot-4, though he noted he was a “kind of disappointed,” but eager to turn his attention to the outdoor season.
Camren Allain, from Carver, Mass., and Jaydin Williams, from Norfolk, Va., cleared 6-8, with Allain winning the title based on missed attempts.
Baker had a season-best of a 6-8 clearance and won the New York State Public High School Athletic Association championship when he cleared 6-6 on March 5 in Staten Island.
