Seabury Hall’s Colton Baldwin attempts to clear a meet-record 5 feet, 8 1/4 inches in the 8th grade boys high jump Saturday at the 94th annual Kiwanis Club of Maui / County of Maui Track and Field Meet at Yamamoto Track & Field Facility in Wailuku. While he didn’t break the record of 5-8, he did win the event with a height of 5-0. Baldwin said he never tried high jumping before Saturday, but after he easily cleared 5 feet, coaches and officials urged him to go straight for the record attempt.
