Newton North track star still aiming for her best leap

Carla Forbes looks down at her feet and her mind goes blank. The physics of the triple jump - the angles, leverage, speed, force - no longer concern her. As she stands on the runway, ready to take off, she knows it’s better to think of nothing and let her body take over. The Newton North junior is the best female high school triple jumper in the country, but she is not satisfied, continually striving to get better.
