CASEYATMEETChapparal high jumper, Casey Waltemath, reflects on track and field season while anticipating nationals. Waltemath is in her last year of track and has had a record of  5 feet, 4 inches in high jump.

Anything you’ve done you never thought you’d try or achieve?

I really increased on my weight lifting this year, I never thought I’d go above 135lbs for squats, but this year I surprised myself with a max of 215lbs.

What have you achieved this season this far?

So far this year I have scored a good number of points for the team & have manage to get the regional champion title, which qualified me for nationals.

Have you ever been surprised with yourself after a meet? If so, why?

The most surprised I’ve been after a meet was last year about this time actually, I almost jumped 5ft 5 1/2 inches. I didn’t think I had it in me.

Best words/advice a coach ever gave you?

“Just jump”

What has the team achieved this year?

So far I’d say our big achievement has been the regional meet, we came out of it with almost 20 people qualified. for nationals.
