Hayward Field in Eugene can bring out the best in people, and that was the case in 3A girls high jump Thursday at the 2023 Oregon high school state track and field meet.

With Asbel Tellez Jaquez and Gracie Johnson from Nyssa pushing her for a couple rounds, Catlin Gabel sophomore Carolina Mauro answered the call and then some.

“Nothing is more important to our daily lives than what is happening around us locally. In sports, the same rings true with high school sports at the core of so many communities not only in the Portland metro-area, but the whole country. Telling these stories and more are why I love to be a part of the community journalism we have here at PMG.”
