Perhaps the biggest surprise of last year's indoor state meet came in the high jump, where Kolt Byers of Bermudian Springs jumped a 2-inch PR, clearing 6-06 to win the state title. No longer under the radar, and having had also upped his all-conditions bet to 6-08 outdoors, Byers will look to defend his title into his junior season.

A number of boys, however, will look to do what Byers did last year and claim the state title.

Juan Mato-Segura of Reading was second at indoor states, clearing 6-04, but also had a season best of 6-06 like Byers. Outdoors, Mato-Segura took sixth in AAA. Look for him to challenge for the state title. Another contender is Cole Peterlin of Perkiomen Valley. The senior jumped a best of 6-5 last winter and bettered that to 6-7 outdoors.

Mason Ventrone of Mount Lebanon and Akeel Blake of Penn Charter are among the other returning medalists from indoor states last year. Ventrone was fourth at indoor states a year ago and holds an indoor best of 6-5. He'll contend for another state medal this season. Blake jumped his PR of 6-4 to take sixth at indoor states last season and will be one to watch this winter.

Hatboro-Horsham's Kasey Savage, State College's Stanley Hamilton, and Plymouth Whitemarsh's Tristan Jones all jumped 6-03 last winter and should be in the mix for state medals this winter in the event.
