Sara Nitz set high goals for her senior high school track and field season.

The Zeeland East high jumper wanted to beat her personal best jump of 5 feet, 9 inches — a local record she set as a junior — and win a Division 2 state championship.

Nitz came up short on her first goal, but accomplished the second by winning the state title May 30 with a jump of 5-6.

She now has a chance to see how she stacks up against others top female jumpers in the Midwest on Saturday in the Midwest Meet of Champions at Jackson’s Withington Stadium.
