Cave Leads Tech at USA Outdoor Junior National Championships

June 22, 2006

Results

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Georgia Tech’s Juan Cave was almost perfect this afternoon, but missed one jump and it cost him a chance at representing the United States as he finished third in the high jump with a school record tying mark of 7 feet, 1 1/2 inches, at the USA Outdoor Junior National Championships on Thursday.

Cave, a native of Voorhees, N.J., saved his best leap for the final meet of the season, besting his previous personal-record of 6 feet, 11 3/4 inches.

St. Augustine’s Joe Kindred and Penn State’s Ryan Fritz were perfect through the first six jumps, whereas Cave missed one try at 6 feet, 9 3/4 inches. That was enough to eliminate the freshman from making the USA Junior Olympic Team.
