DHS Grad Dominates Women’s High Jump

University of Arizona women’s track and field junior high jumper Brigetta Barrett continued her winning streak with another dominating performance at the World University Games in China on August 22.  Competing for Team USA, the 2009 Duncanville HS graduate won the high jump title with a personal-best clearance of 6-5. Her record jump is tied for No. 2 on Arizona’s all-time list and currently ranks No. 6 in the world for 2011. She also won the B section of the high jump preliminaries with a clearance of 5-10.75. Brigetta went on to compete in the 2011 World Track and Field Championships in South Korea in late August, and we hope to have updates on her performance soon.
