    Walton High Jumps 6-feet-10.25 Inches

    May 16, 2015
    LOS ANGELES — Taylor Walton did it again.

    The Oxy freshman jumped a lifetime best 6-feet, 10.25 inches at the Redlands Last Chance Meet on Friday, moving him up to seventh in NCAA Divison III and fourth all-time in Oxy program history.

    The mark almost certainly punches his ticket to the NCAA Division III National Championships next week in Canton, N.Y.

    Only Kevin Hall, Rudy Beaver and Joe Faust, who holds Oxy’s all-time record at 7-feet, have jumped higher than Walton representing Oxy.

    The Marin County Native cleared 6-9 at the SCIAC meet on May 2, winning the SCIAC Individual title in the event and matching his lifetime best. He nearly cleared 6-10.25 that night, but clipped the bar with his heel after his body had already made it over.

    Walton’s incredible season is a signal of the Tigers increased competitiveness. The Oxy men finished second in the SCIAC and head coach Rob Bartlett was named coach of the year.

    Oxy’s other highlights from the Redlands meet included Jeh Johnson running a personal best 10.84 seconds in the 100, Gabriel Barrett-Jackson breaking 22 seconds in the 200 for the first time at 21.97 and Stephen Nemeth clearing 14-06 in the pole vault.

    Declarations for the NCAA Division III National Championships are today, with final participants announced on Sunday morning.
