Hammond's Jermika Miller had long wanted to win a state title. The triple jumper finally got one Friday - in her last high school meet. Miller won her event in Class 3A at the state championship meet at Morgan State on a day that featured weather more suited for football than track. The senior turned in her second-best jump of the season to win on the first day of competition for Class 3A and 4A schools. The No. 6 Digital Harbor boys lead in Class 3A (23 points), thanks to a win from Michael Francis in the long jump and Corey Mendez's second-place effort in the high jump.

Just a year ago, Mount Hebron's Josh "Jay" Bair couldn't so much as qualify for the finals of his best event, the triple-jump, at the Howard County championships. With his other event, the 300 hurdles, taking place just before his first jump, he was simply too spent to be effective. What a difference a year of intensive training has made. At this year's Howard County meet, the senior scored victories in both, also running the leadoff leg on his team's third-place 4 x 100 relay, to help lead the Vikings to a lopsided team victory.

In August 2004, Michelle Newman tried out for the volleyball team at Eastern Technical High by day and cooled off in front of the television by night, watching the Athens Olympics. Having played recreational basketball, soccer and softball, and impressed by the events at Olympic Stadium, Newman made a mental note to try track and field in spring 2005, at the end of her freshman year. Two years later, Newman, now a junior, is one of the best horizontal jumpers the Baltimore area has ever seen.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Ralph Spry was a wistful witness to the men's long jump at the U.S. track and field trials for the Olympic Games last night. Spry is the head coach at Auburn University, which he guided to third place at the NCAA championships last month, the program's best outdoor finish ever. A generation ago, he was the most accomplished horizontal jumper the Baltimore area has ever produced. Old Mill High had a powerhouse team in 1978, when Spry set a state record and reached 49 feet, 6 1/2 inches in the triple jump.

As the Summer Olympics commence, Tom Carson and I raise a glass at the Swallow at The Hollow in Baltimore to Ray Ewry (pronounced Yew-ree), because attention must be paid: Tom's grandfather set a record in London in 1908 that the great Michael Phelps could reach in London in 2012, and such things have meaning across the ages. But before we go on, a clarification: Depending on how you count them, Ray Ewry won either eight or 10 individual gold medals as an amazing Olympic jumper — the Human Frog, they called him — early in the 20th century.
