How far, how high will future Coug fly?

NO ONE HAS jumped farther in the state prep ranks than Rahmel Dockery this season, not in any class. The state track and field meet is a little over two weeks away, and just how far Dockery might leap in the long jump is anyone's guess. But don't forget about the high jump or 200-meters, either.

Curtis' Dockery is the state's leader in the boys long jump at 24-5 this year.

The state meet will be held later this month on May 26-28 (both Class 4A and 3A).

Dockery also might have something to say in two other events, the high jump and the 200 meters.

Two years ago, Dockery became the first high-jumper in the history of the West Central District to clear 7 feet, the fifth ever in the state and the first sophomore to have done it.

Dockery's best effort in the high jump this year according to athletic.net is 6-6, which is tied for fourth best in the state. The top state mark this season is 6-11 by Kasen Williams. The all-time state mark is 7-4 ½ by Rick Noji (Franklin, 1988).

Dockery's fastest time in the 200-m this season is 22.45. His personal best is a 21.92. The top prep time in the state this year is a 21.78, by Wes Bailey of Mead. The all-time state mark is 21.02 by Ja'Warren Hooker (Ellensburg, 1997)

Dockery also participates in the 4x100 relay for Curtis.
