Divoria Gafney places a close 2nd in the long jump at the GHSA AA State Track Meet

Toombs County’s Divoria Gafney took the lead in the GHSA AA State Long Jump Final with her second attempt. I was a clean leep of 17 feet and 7 3/4 inches. However, Vidalia’s Myesha Hall jumped 17 feet 8 inches on her third attempt and that held up as the two best jumpers came out of Toombs County with Hall winning by a mere 1/4 of an inch over Gaffney, who wound up second.

Divoria also competed in the 100 meter race and ran a time of 12.71 for a sixth place finish in heat two on Thursday in Rome.
