Congrats to Jessica, Sara and Jordan. There is a little more behind Jordan's 4th place finish: he beat his PR by almost 5 inches! That jump of 22 feet 4.75 inches is now the 5th best in school history. The most amazing thing tho is both his and Sara's performance occured less than 12 hours after Graduation on Friday night and the All Night Senior Party. What great kids we have representing RHS!! Thanks Jessica, Sara & Jordan!
