Sophomore stars

This week’s spotlight is on two Beaufort High sophomores who will compete at the state championship level in track and field events. Jackie Barnes, right, is seeded No. 1 in South Carolina in pole-vaulting, and her personal best is 12’ 6”.  After 10 years as a gymnast, Jackie decided to pursue the sport of pole vaulting just last year.  Classmate Bre-Anna Heyward-White is also seeded No. 1 and runs in the 100, 200, open 400, and 4x4 relay. Bre-Anna has been running since the seventh grade, when she attended Beaufort Middle.
