Peach Basket

Kelly Walsh's Sage Coventry (13) moves the ball around Natrona players during the annual Pre-Peach Basket Friday, Dec. 14, 2018.

In a ceremonial pen-to-paper act, Kelly Walsh senior Sage Coventry made his decision to high jump at the University of Wyoming official Thursday.

Coventry, who also played football and basketball for the Trojans, burst onto the high-school high jump scene by finishing third at the 2017 state meet as a sophomore. He surpassed his seed height of 5-foot-10 and cleared 6 feet, finishing just four inches off gold.

He repeated as the third-place finisher in high jump last spring, once again finishing 4 inches away from first. Coventry cleared 6-foot-2, the same as current Wyoming freshman jumper Pete Mead, but earned third on attempts.

Coventry's senior track season has already begun with practice. He was scheduled to compete at the Glen Legler Early Bird this weekend before its cancellation.
