WESTBROOK – To win the Maine State Class A High Jump is impressive. To set a new state record at 5’7″ is remarkable. For a freshman to accomplish all of that is inspiring. Nyagoa Bayak devoted a majority of the winter practicing with and playing on the Girl’s Varsity Basketball team, where she started in nearly every game. To the surprise of nobody Nyagoa won the Class A State Championship in High Jump. Thirteen days later, Nyagoa along with ten other teammates, traveled to the Reggie Lewis Center in Boston, MA to compete in the New England Track and Field Championships. Nyagoa was seeded #1 in going into New England’s – and she delivered. Nyagoa again cleared 5’7″ to claim her first New England Championship. In the coming weeks she will train for his first National Championship debut. The 2016 New Balance Indoor Track National Championships are being held in New York from March 11th-13th. Bayak, who is currently tied for the twelfth in the country, will attempt to capture her first National title. Do not count her out just yet, Bayak tends to perform her best when the spotlight shines its brightest.
