Defending-champ Haugen takes 2nd at state in high jump
CHARLESTON – Emma Haugen wasn’t able to match her state title from a year ago in the high jump, but the Lyons Township sophomore still earned a state medal by taking second place.
Haugen had edged out Huntley’s Omo Tseumah in the high jump last year when Haugen cleared 5 feet, 7 inches to top Tseumah’s 5-6. This time around, both went higher and Tseumah won on criteria.
Both cleared 5-8, but couldn’t clear 5-9. Tseumah needed fewer attempts to clear 5-8 than Haugen which served as the tiebreaker. Haugen will be heavily favored to regain her title next year with Tseumah graduating.
