ALLISON LAMBERTH/Courtesy ALLISON LAMBERTH/Courtesy Congratulations to Poth High School’s Jake Lamberth! The star athlete has hit new heights, racking up a 7-foot high jump in the Poteet Relays Feb. 24. This places Jake as No. 1 in Texas and No. 2 in the nation among high school boys in 2018. In January, the Poth senior was ranked No. 3 in the high jump nationwide. Jake, who signed with the University of Nebraska last November, has his sights on breaking the high school national record, which is 7 feet, 5 inches, as he shared with reporter Jeff Valcher last August (seeRaising the bar” Aug. 23, 2017). Good luck, Jake!
