Perry’s Laubacher Wins Long Jump Title

Perry High School senior Luke Laubacher won the Ohio state title in the long jump on June 4 at Hilliard Darby High Schoo, thanks to him breaking the school record in the event. Twice! Luke first broke the Perry long jump record of 23 feet, 8 inches, set by state champion Steve Fink in 1979, when he jumped 23-9.5 on the second attempt of his semifinal flight. That jump catapulted Luke to the lead in the event, a lead he never relinquished.
