Anderson in orbit
Tuesday, April 2, 2013
Grayson Anderson got into a different orbit Thursday.
The Camas High School senior soared the bar set at 6 feet. Then 6-2. Then 6-4. Then 6-6.
The crowd of athletes and coaches watching his every move gave Anderson a few last bursts of energy in the thrusters. He finally came to a rest at 6 feet, 6 inches on the day, feeling accomplished.
“You always hope for days like this, but they don’t come around all that often,” Anderson said. “This is why I do track and field.”
