Jain third at state

 Pigeon Forge’s Trevor Jain cleared six feet, four inches on Friday to finish third in the class A/AA high jump at the Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association’s track and field championships. Jain, in just his second year jumping, tied the mark for his best jump in competition and moved up two spots from his fifth-place finish last year at Middle Tennessee State University. Each of Friday’s top three competitors cleared 6-4, but CPA’s Zack Weatherly cleared it on his first attempt to win the title. Torran Davis reached the height on his second attempt to come in second for Red Bank while Jain cleared the bar on his third and final attempt. All three failed to clear 6-6.
