Rogers High’s Martin jumps to Athlete of the Week honors

Rogers High junior Hannah Martin set the Class 5A-7A state girls indoor high jump record — twice.

During Saturday’s meet at the Randal Tyson Track Center in Fayetteville, Martin broke the record by clearing 5 feet, 6 inches. She then raised the bar an inch and cleared 5-7 to break the record she had just set.

It broke the previous mark set 20 years ago by Fayetteville’s Keely Yarbrough.

For her performance, Martin is the ARPreps.com Athlete of the Week.

Here’s a look at other top performances from the past week:

• Springdale Har-Ber’s relay team of De’Sire Perez, Kalyn Haley, Raeghan Smithpeters and Julianne Dillon broke the 4×400-meter record with a time of 4 minutes, 2.30 seconds. The previous mark of 4:03.15 was set by Cabot two years ago.

• Prairie Grove senior boys basketball team defeated Pea Ridge 59-56 on Tuesday night. It handed the Blackhawks, the No. 2 team in Class 4A, it’s first 3A/4A District 1 loss and only their second loss of the season.
