Mark Jones

SUMMIT, N.J. > Indoor Track and Field

Mark, a senior at Summit High, high-jumped 7'0" at the Group 2 Relays to tie the Union County indoor record and become part of the first father-son tandem to jump seven feet in high school; his father, Bob, also cleared that height as a senior at East New Brunswick High in 1977. Last year, Mark won the New Balance Nationals outdoor title with a jump of 6'10¾.

Kayla Kiernan

NORTH SMITHFIELD, R.I. > Ice Hockey

Kayla, a senior center and captain at North Smithfield High, scored four times in a 5--2 victory over Cranston Co-op to become the state's first girl to reach 100 goals. The game took place hours after her father had suffered a minor stroke. Her first goal gave Kayla the career record in Rhode Island; her last took her to the century mark. Kayla was named all-state last year.

Conor, a senior and co-captain at The Bolles School, won the 2,000-meter men's high school lightweight category at the Southern Sprints indoor rowing race in Melbourne, Fla., with a time of 6:31.
