As a baby, Raegan Nizdil would sit on a blanket at track and field practices with a coloring book to keep her occupied.But the constant whirl of activity surrounding her often meant her crayons went untouched.

Nizdil was always intrigued by one event in particular — the high jump.

She watched as competitors tried to master the art of soaring over the bar at varying heights.
