    Eminence’s TJ Cooper cleared the crossbar at 6-foot-2 at the Region 5 Championship on Saturday afternoon to become the regional champ in the high jump and advance to the Class A state meet one week later.

    He came through in the clutch. The senior set a personal best by three inches, was just one inch away from tying Ed Berry’s school record and extended Eminence’s streak of qualifying a high jumper for the state meet to six years. This Saturday at the University of Louisville, Cooper will get the chance to leave his mark as one of the best jumpers in Class A.
