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.
It's worthy of note that as of the end of the 2018 track season Jamie and Alysah hold the fourth and fifth all-time best jumps in San Diego All-Time History.
