Comage hits state standard in high jump

Seniors' jump one of many highlights at conference meet

Crawfordsville — Last season, Lebanon’s Tre’ Comage had a heavy workload in the conference meet and was unable to claim the title in his signature event – the high jump.

That wasn’t going to be the case this year.

Comage had a lesser workload and won the high jump Friday night in a state standard height of 6-feet-6-inches.

“Last year, I probably cost him the high jump (title) because I had to put him in a lot of events to compete,” Lebanon head coach Tim Curts said. “I told him I wasn’t going to do that this year.”

While the state standard doesn’t guarantee a spot in the state meet unless it is done in the postseason, it was the start of a good day for Comage. Along with the win in the high jump, he anchored the victorious 1,600-meter relay team in a winning time of 3:33.

Also on the relay were Drake Burger, Jacob Turner and Phillip Skillington.

“Tre’ got off quickly in the high jump and got into a good groove,” Curts said. “I thought he might have a go at the school record tonight, but the conditions weren’t the best for it. Then he closed out the 4x4 with a really strong leg.”

Comage was part of the only two wins for the Tigers, but Lebanon had other solid performances on the night.
