KEVIN MEIER

Oakland junior

Sport: Track & field.

Events: High jump, long jump, triple jump, pole vault.

Age: 17.

Interests/Hobbies: Choir, plays tuba in band, FBLA.

GPA: 3.44.

Favorite Athlete: Simon Park, pole vaulter for South Eugene.

Performance: Won the high jump (5-10), long jump (19-11) and triple jump (43-8 1/2) at the Petersen Memorial Invitational in Winston. Set a new school record in the triple jump, topping his previous PR by well over a foot.

Quotable: “It was one of the best meets I’ve had in a long time. I PR’d in two events (long jump and triple jump) and it was a really good day for me. I’ve been trying to beat that record (in the TJ) since my freshman year, so that’s a huge milestone for me. I’m hoping I can continue to improve.”
