For the next few weeks, MileSplit MA will features some of our top individuals this outdoor track & field season in our Athletes To Watch series. Who are the athletes that should make an impact this spring? We'll do our best to let you know.
Athletes To Watch: Zoe Dainton, Hingham High
The talented senior has won the last three state crowns (indoor and outdoor) in the high jump and is favored to make it four in a row at the All State Meet in early June. Dainton leaped a personal best of 5 feet, 9 inches at the Indoor States on Feb. 24 and was second at the New England's with a 5-7 effort. Dainton will have plenty of competition to contend with this season. At the recent state meet, three other athletes cleared 5-6 - Belmont's Anoush Krafian, Wellesley's Anna Jordahl-Henry and Wachusett's Sara James.
