REACHING NEW HEIGHTS

Triton's Darsney blows away all expectations in senior season

(Continued)

Darsney wound up not having her greatest performance at Nationals, jumping 5-2 ½ to place 18th in the country, but that didn’t diminish anything she had accomplished over her historic season.

“Kerstin had a season for the ages,” Colbert said. “Nobody had ever seen a girl here at Triton or even in the Cape Ann League high jump 5-8. That’s going to be a hard record to break.”

Looking back, Darsney said she wasn’t expecting to perform as well as she did but is thrilled with the way things turned out.

“I was definitely happily shocked,” Darsney said. “I was hoping I’d do that well, but I wasn’t expecting anything like that to happen.”

With the injury behind her and a commitment to run Division 1 track at UMass Lowell in her back pocket, Darsney is now looking forward to finishing up her high school career strong in the upcoming spring season.

“I’m really proud of this past winter. I’m really excited for it because it makes me think this spring season is going to be just as exciting,” she said.
