Athletic Excellence

The 6-foot-2, 150-pound senior became the first prep boy in the country since 2017 to clear 7-feet in the high jump and leap 24 feet in the long jump this past season. He’s also the first Arizona prep jumper to accomplish the feat in the same season. McHenry won the long jump title at the state’s inaugural All-Division championships with a leap of 24 feet, 10.25 inches, which ranked No. 5 nationally among prep competitors in 2023 at the time of his selection. His best high jump of 7 feet ranked No. 10 nationally this spring.
