Myra Dean had won the high jump at every meet the Bayfield High School track team competed at in 2010.
The state meet would be no different than the previous 12 events.
Dean, who will take her high jumping act to UNLV in the fall, cleared a height of 5-foot-4 to claim her first Class 3A state championship Thursday at Jeffco Stadium in Lakewood.
"She came pretty darn close to 5-6, but just couldn't quite clear it," BHS coach Sherry Kimball said.
The victory was the lucky 13th in a row for Dean, who was runner-up in the event in 2009.
"Oh, I definitely (expected her to win)," Kimball said.
Destini McGhehey put on a strong show in the high jump as well for Bayfield, clearing 5-2 to earn a seventh-place finish.
Advancing to Saturday's finals in the 4x100 was the Wolverines' team of Lisa Wickman, Sierra Aten, Caitlin Simbeck and Jacey Sirios, who qualified with a time of 50.9 seconds.
Wickman, Aten, Simbeck and Patty Powers turned that trick in the 4x200, advancing to Saturday's final with a time of 1 minute, 47.06 seconds.
Jacob Hetrick finished fourth in the pole vault, and freshman Steele Allred finished 10th with a personal-best jump of 11-6.
"It wasn't a place, but still for a freshman it was a pretty decent day," Kimball said.
Travis Stuever wasn't so fortunate, failing to clear a height in his attempts.
"It just was not his day," Kimball said.
Other finishers for Bayfield on Thursday included a 12th-place finish for Aaron Velasquez in the discus, a 10th-place finish for FLC football-signee Taylor Swanemyr in the triple jump, and Wickman's 10th in the hurdle prelims, one spot from advancing to the finals.
Derek Laue finished fourth in the 3,200 at 9:56, and teammate John Cusick finished ninth.
Laue and Cusick will return to race in the 1,600 on Saturday, joining the 4x100 and 4x200 teams looking for strong state finishes.
Seth Posey will take aim at a state title in the shot put at 11 a.m. today.
"(Laue and Cusick) have a really good shot of medaling, both of them," Kimball said.
"Of course the 4x100 and 4x200 teams should do well. I expect them right up there toward the top. ... (Posey) has an excellent chance of medaling," she said.
