LOUISVILLE Anderson County high jumper Jordan Sloan finished sixth in the KHSAA Class AAA track meet held Friday and Saturday in Louisville. Sloan jumped 6-2 to become the first Anderson performer to score at the state meet since 2004. Sloan survived a scare when he scratched twice at 6-0 but hit his final jump at that height. He made 6-2 on his first try but missed all three attempts at 6-4. No other Anderson performer finished in the top 8, although sprinter Cody Dixon just missed the cut, finishing ninth in the preliminary heats. Dixon was less than .10 of a second away from making the finals.
