HOUSTON – Sometimes a ticket being punched to state comes down to just a few inches.

That was the case for Tomball's Rachel Maciejeski.

The then-sophomore cleared 11-feet-6 inches at the Region III-5A Meet, which ended up being four inches short of clinching a spot at state.

"It was heartbreaking getting third," Maciejeski said. "Wanting to be there at state but I've improved a lot this year and so we're hoping for good things."

The improvement has been noticeable this year.

Maciejeski set a new personal record at the Spring Relays on February 16, clearing 12-feet-10 inches, which was her first meet of the year.

Since then, the junior has reset her personal record by clearing 13-feet-4 inches at the Bluebonnet Relays on March 22.
