Chelsea and Zoe Challacombe advance to national meet

A pair of sisters from Los Alamos took part in the recent National Junior Olympic meet at Greensboro, N.C.

Both Zoe Challacombe and Chelsea Challacombe advanced to the national meet in the high jump. Chelsea placed 15th overall in the bantam girls division while Zoe was 18th in the midget girls division of the meet.

Zoe finished the bantam girls competition by clearing 3 feet, 7-1/4 inches. The event was won by Missouri’s Carlie Queen with a leap of 4-7.

Chelsea had an off-day in her competition, however, with her jump of 4-5. The winning jump measured in at 5-1.

To get to the national meet, the Challacombes had to finish in the top three at a regional Junior Olympics meet, which was held last month in Provo, Utah.

At the regional contest, Zoe finished third with a jump of 3-5 ¾ for the bantam girls and Chelsea was second in midget girls competition, clearing 4-7 ½. Chelsea’s mark actually tied winner Jalissa Smith’s mark, but Smith won the tiebreaker.

Also at regionals, Zoe was eighth in the 800 meter run (2:59.12). She competed in the shot put there, as well, but scratched on all three of her attempts.

Chelsea was 11th in the 400 meters at regionals (1:13.14) and was fifth in the shot put (27-10 ¼).
