Lafayette track and field put a bow on their season this week as they competed in the MHSAA Class 1A/3A/5A track meet in Pearl, with junior Harmony Jackson claiming an individual state title in high jump.

The junior narrowly edged out a group of three athletes who tied for second, including fellow Commodore Ashlyn Hill.

The state title capped off an impressive all-around year for Jackson, who was named to the Oxford Eagle All-Area Team in volleyball before earning a nod to the girls’ basketball All-Area Team as she helped guide Lafayette to a state semifinal appearance.
