McBarnette '80 still jumping

46-year-old Princeton graduate Bruce McBarnette, won the high jump at the U.S. National Masters Track and Field Championships in Boston, Mass. McBarnette won his age group with a jump height of 1.88 meters, which was six inches than the next finisher in his age group. McBarnette was a football player at Princeton before he decided to try out track in one of his off-seasons. By the time he graduated, he had committed himself entirely to his new passion. Unfortunately for the Tigers, McBarnette reached his full potential only after graduating. Last year, the tiger alum set a world record for his age group with a jump height of 1.93 meters.
