Redemption: Goswick claims second state high jump title

 

AUSTIN – Miranda Goswick failed to reach the podium a year ago.

The then-junior was coming off a state championship year but finished fifth in the 1A Girls High Jump State Championship last May, fueling the senior for one final push for a title.

“It’s like I had a burn and want in my heart,” Goswick said. “I’m not going to go do that again. I have to go get my spot for first back again.”

On Friday, the senior cleared 5-foot-5, capturing the gold for a second time in her career and breaking the Conference 1A record of 5-foot-4 set in 2016.

“It’s kind of like redemption,” Goswick said. “So, coming back and breaking the state record and taking home the gold means a lot.”

Goswick broke the record of 5-foot-4, which was set by Makinna Serrata (Tilden McMullen County) and Rylee Henning (Aquila) three years ago. The state record still stands at 6-foot-2 sett by Amy Acuff in 1992.

Goswick will play basketball and run track at Hardin-Simmons University.
