After falling short at this year’s 4A State track meet, Greenwood High School high jumper Adam Harrison, who placed second at the event, explained that coming so close to a state championship motivated him to capture a championship at the college level, if given the opportunity.

Harrison took a potential step in that direction Friday morning, as he signed his National Letter of Intent to compete at Charleston Southern University.

“I’m very excited,” Harrison said. “I’m just ready for next track season to get here so that I can get back on the track.”

Harrison is no stranger to success, as he made it to Nationals in the Junior Olympics, where he did not place. Coming up short at Nationals, combined with his second place finish at this year’s state meet, has made him want to prove he belongs at the next level.

“After my failure at the national level, I wanted to step it up and prove that I could be great,” Harrison said. “A major springboard for next year is that I was one place away from winning state. That gives me motivation to win next year.”

As Harrison is about to embark on his collegiate career, he explained that his goals once arriving on campus are relatively simple.

“I am hoping to get acquainted to everything,” Harrison said. “After that, work hard and work towards winning a conference title.”
