ND EZE, NEW ALBANY
Eze was an all-state finisher in high jump as a junior and capped off his senior year with a fourth-place finish at the state meet in the 110-meter hurdles.
He balanced that with competing in the high jump at state, but finished 19th with a leap of 6-foot-4.
"I was happy just to place and get fourth. I'm not going to say I wish I could have done better because I put everything out on the table," Eze said.
The recent New Albany grad plans to attend IU Southeast and let his knee heal up before pursuing college opportunities.
"My senior year I started developing. Once I get back to health and back to high-jumping, I can be a double threat in college," Eze said.
Eze also enjoyed the team success, making major contributions to the Bulldogs' sectional and regional titles. Eze won sectional and regional crowns in the 110 hurdles to help the Dogs' cause.
"That was something I've never experienced," he said. "Winning that with my team, finally giving them something and leaving our mark senior year, it felt really good."
