Lakeville South's Morgan Pieri jumps with the best of them

  • Updated: May 13, 2014 - 6:23 PM

Lakeville South senior Morgan Pieri is one of the state’s top girls’ high jumpers.

Pieri placed third in the event with a leap of 5 feet, 6 inches in the Class 2A track and field state meet a year ago at Hamline University in St. Paul. Teammate junior Caraline Slattery won the event at 5-8, a mark that Pieri has also reached.

Pieri, who serves as one of the team’s captains, has also posted the top 10 leaps in school history in the long jump and triple jump.

Here is a closer look at Pieri, who also played tennis for the Cougars in the fall:
