SIMS JUMPS PAST LONG-STANDING MARK

The nature of track and field is that records are made to be broken. That it took 50 years for someone to set a new Anderson County High School record for the girls’ long jump shows just how impressive both the new record is and the old mark was.

Sophomore Alorra Sims soard 17-feet-3.5-inches Saturday in the Heart of the Bluegrass meet at Henry Clay High School in Lexington. Sims, considered one of the top jumpers in Kentucky, bested a school mark set in 1965 by Charlene Peyton, who leaped 16-11 at a time when girls’ track was in its infancy in Kentucky.
