PROVO, Utah – Amber Kartchner has accomplished a lot during her four years as an athlete at Logan High School, but one thing had eluded her heading into her final couple of weeks as a Grizzly.
Kartchner was determined to capture an evasive state title before moving to Utah County to play basketball for BYU, and she was able to cross that off her bucket list on Day 1 of the 4A State Track & Field Championship.
The senior shared the high jump title with Uintah’s Kora Cook. Both athletes soared over the bar at 5 feet, 4 inches, on their first attempts, plus had no misses in the competition before that. Green Canyon’s Jayden Beach cleared 5-4 on her third and final attempt — a new personal record — and ended up claiming the bronze medal.
