Pikesville coach Adam Hittner rolled the dice in the final minutes of the Class 1A indoor track state title meet last month. He told Morgan Jones to skip the 1,600-meter relay - the meet's final running event - and just participate in the pole vault, which took place around the same time. The move paid off as she finished second in the pole vault, and Pikesville still won the relay to edge out Manchester Valley by four points and capture the state championship. “It was a gamble either way, but one we were prepared to take, and having more talented and prepared athletes around certainly helps your confidence as a coach,” Hittner said.
