Texas freshman Andra Manson, Track and Field News High School Athlete of the Year in 2002 when he set the US high school record at 7-7, dazzled the crowd with a perfect performance. Entering the competition at 2.11 meters (6-11), Manson jumped at only four heights, making each on his first attempt and walking off calmly without expression. After 7-6, he retired for the evening. "It's a long season," Manson explained. "Save my jumps." One official asked Manson to autograph her score sheet. "I know he's going to win Olympic gold some day." Manson, who laid off last year after entering college in January, said he was enjoying Austin, which is only 90 miles from his home town of Brenham TX.
