In 2017 Sophomore Alysah Hickey set the school records for the 100 and the 200 meter dashes.
She also was the San Diego Section leader in the high jump with a leap of 5-7. For most schools in the country, this would be a school record, and in most states would get to or win the State Finals.
At this point in time she has 2 more seasons to go so maybe Klages' record isn't unbreakable after all... we'll see.
Top girls' high jump performances:
Because the previous school record was set 1979 at 5 feet 4 inches and it stood until Klages broke it in 2005 there is a 26 year gap when no one jumped 5-4 again. Because of this we can list everyone who has jumped at least 5-4 from 1979 to the present day. If it weren't for Klages 5-10.25 mark several of these girls would have tied or broken the record. All recent girls were coached by Kerry Elders.
Top jumps in Coronado history
Jamie Klages has the top 5 not counting the times she jumped 5-4.
Alysah Hickey has the next 2
Note... Alysah has several marks at 5-5, 5-6, and 5-4 as well as a jump of 1.70 meters (5-6.25) at 2017 USATF Jr. Nationals.
5-6.5 Abigail Callihan
5-5 Sarah Player

Teta Murphy --- Previous record holder
Most schools are happy to have one girl over 5 feet. In 2015, coached by Kerry Elders, the Islanders had 4.
